A woman who is eight months pregnant survived a two-car collision with a police car speeding to an incident in northern Abbotsford on Saturday afternoon.
The 28-year-old woman and her fetus, as well as a 17-year-old female passenger in the Audi A6 she was driving, were all checked out in hospital and released.
"The mother and child went for some additional tests [on Sunday], and the latest update at 6:15 p.m. was that everything was looking fine," Abbotsford Police Department media liaison Const. Ian MacDonald told The Province.
An APD officer was en route to a single-vehicle accident at Sumas Way and Highway 11 around 2:20 p.m. when the officer approached a red light at Riverside Street and Harris Road, MacDonald said in a news release.
The officer "was unable to come to a complete stop and continued into the intersection," said the release.
"An Audi A6, driven by a 28-year-old woman from Mission, was travelling westbound on Harris Road with the green light in that same intersection.
"The Audi collided with the rear driver's side of the police vehicle."
The officer was not injured.
The initial accident the police officer was responding to involved a 37-year-old woman from Abbotsford in a 1993 Toyota 4 Runner.
The SUV left the road when it lost traction in the rain.
The driver was trapped in the upside down SUV.
"The driver was able to crawl out of the wreck," said MacDonald.
"She wasn't seriously injured."
MacDonald said several witnesses to the collision with the police vehicle have provided statements to police, but he asked any witnesses who have not come forward to contact the APD at 604-859-5225.
