Luckily, no one in either accident sustained any life-threatening injuries, but the RCMP vehicle will likely be a write-off. 

There were several accidents in the Peace Region that morning due to icy road conditions, and Sergeant Scott West admits it’s surprising there aren’t a higher number of incidents involving police vehicles each year. 

“Bad roads and we’re going to the place where the roads are the worst, because that’s where they’re having the accidents, to get there to help people,” he explains. “It’s actually astounding we don’t end up in more accidents.”
