An off-duty White Rock RCMP officer suffered minor injuries in a Dec. 3 collision near the Pacific Highway border crossing.

Officers collide near truck border

The damage was substantial, but fortunately, injuries to two officers involved in a Dec. 3 crash were minor.

An off-duty White Rock police officer heading stateside for Christmas shopping got delayed when she was involved in a collision just north of the border.

Const. Janelle Shoihet said she suffered a bruised arm in the crash, which occurred around 11:30 a.m. Dec. 3 at 2 Avenue and 176 Street. Her mother suffered minor injuries. Shoihet’s 18-month-old son was uninjured.

She said the crash occurred when an Acura “appeared out of nowhere” to turn onto 2 Avenue as she headed south in the Nexus lane towards the Pacific Highway crossing.

Shoihet said she slammed on the brakes but couldn’t prevent her Jeep from hitting the Acura’s passenger-side.

“There were pieces of my car all over the road,” she said.

The Acura driver – an officer with Canada Border Services Agency – was treated at the scene for leg injuries.

A 30-year-old Abbotsford man was ticketed for failing to stop at a red light.
