Charges laid in two police car crashes

Charges were laid in two separate crashes involving Guelph police cars this month, and in one case a police officer was charged.
In the first incident, on Nov. 2 at 7:20 p.m., a vehicle stopped at a red light at College Avenue and the Hanlon Expressway was hit from behind by an unmarked Guelph police vehicle, a news release said.
There were no injuries, but damage was estimated at $500 for the police vehicle and between $1,500 to $2,000 for the other car. The officer was charged with making an unsafe start from a stopped position.
The second crash, involving a Guelph Police cruiser and a Chevrolet Malibu, happened Monday at 5:35 p.m. on York Road. The eastbound cruiser was hit by the westbound Malibu as it crossed the centre line of the road, a release said.
A police officer went to hospital to be treated for a possible concussion, it said. The Malibu’s two occupants did not need medical treatment. The Malibu’s 40-year-old driver faces a careless driving charge.
