A man from Alberta and two on-duty Winnipeg police officers were injured in a crash east of the city around 5:35 p.m. on Jan. 31, RCMP say.
The accident happened on Highway 1, near Prawda in the rural municipality of Reynolds, Man.
The 22-year-old male driver from Alberta was taken to a local hospital with no life-threatening injuries, RCMP said in a news release Tuesday.
The two officers were taken to a Winnipeg hospital where they were treated for their injuries and then released.
The accident was reported to the Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba, which has decided to take a monitoring role in the RCMP investigation. The Independent Investigation Unit was created to investigate all serious incidents involving police officers in Manitoba.
“The incident did not result in a serious injury. The officers were treated and released from the hospital, therefore it does not meet the mandate of the IIU,” the Independent Investigation Unit said in an email.
