A 35-year-old RCMP constable of the Craik detachment still remains in hospital in Regina.
“He was in a very serious accident,” RCMP Corp. Rob KIng told the Times-Herald.
On Sunday, the constable was called to assist other members of the detachment with a domestic disturbance earlier reported to the RCMP.
The officer was travelling west on the 732 grid in the rural municipality of Sarnia, in a marked police vehicle with his emergency equipment activated when he lost control of the vehicle at approximately 11:07 p.m. The vehicle entered the north ditch and rolled several times. The police vehicle, a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria, came to rest on its wheels. The constable was the sole occupant of the vehicle.
A passerby stopped and was able to call for assistance using the police radio. First responders from the Holdfast area, Davidson Fire Dept., Craik Fire Dept., and Davidson EMS all responded to assist. The injured officer was removed from the police car using the Jaws of Life and was airlifted to hospital in Regina via Stars air ambulance.
The RCMP Member Employee Assistance Program has been providing assistance to the family and members of the Craik detachment during this difficult time.
