Manitoba RCMP are asking motorists to slow down and move over when approaching emergency vehicles after one of their cruisers was hit on Thursday.
Police were stopped behind a semi-trailer that had been in a collision on Highway 1 near Headingley at around 7:30 a.m.
While the officer was in his vehicle with emergency lights activated, a passing semi struck the rear left side of the cruiser.
Police say no injuries were reported, but charges against the driver are pending.
In a separate tweet, RCMP reminded the public to slow down and move over to 40 km/h if the speed limit is 79 km/h or less and to 60 km/h if the speed limit is 80 km/h or higher when approaching emergency vehicles and tow trucks.
