B.C.'s police watchdog is investigating after a man was seriously injured after an attempted traffic stop by Fort St. John RCMP this week.
The Independent Investigations Office says RCMP reported an attempted traffic stop after officers "observed a vehicle under suspicious circumstances," around 2 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 28.
"Officers lost contact and shortly after the vehicle was found upside down off the side of the road," the IIO said. "The male driver sustained serious facial injuries and was transported to hospital."
No further details have been released.
The IIO will investigate whether police actions or inactions were linked to the man’s injuries.
