Red Deer RCMP are investigating after the driver of a motorcycle they were attempting to pull over allegedly refused to stop and then collided with a minivan.
The incident happened on 40 Avenue near 55A Street just before 6 p.m. on Thursday.
Officers had attempted to stop a motorcycle after it was found to be travelling just over 90 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.
In a Friday news release, RCMP said the peace officer, who was on foot and in uniform, stepped forward and indicated that the motorcycle should pull over.
“At that point, the motorcycle accelerated away from the peace officer and collided with the rear end of a minivan that was travelling southbound on 40 Avenue. The motorcycle continued to slide and subsequently struck a truck that was also travelling southbound.”
Investigators said the motorcycle driver was taken to hospital with numerous non-life-threatening injuries. The drivers of the minivan and truck were not injured.
