The 47-year-old Craik RCMP officer who was injured in a collision over the weekend is still in the hospital.
“He was taken away from the scene,” said Cpl. Rob King of the RCMP F Division. “He is still in the hospital in Regina in serious condition.”
The officer was sitting inside a marked vehicle with emergency equipment activated while investigating a single-vehicle rollover on Friday when the collision occurred. The driver of the other vehicle involved, a 35-year-old man from Saskatoon, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The weekend collision resulted in a second member of the Craik RCMP to be injured in September. A 35-year-old Craik RCMP officer was seriously injured in a single-vehicle rollover on Sept. 2. He was airlifted by STARS ambulance to a hospital in Regina. King said he is still in the hospital and there are no updates available on his condition or when he will be back to work.
He added that the RCMP has brought in officers from other detachments to cover for the injured officers.
