Antigonish RCMP Media Release

Posted on January 18, 2013

At approximately 5 am this morning Antigonish RCMP were responding to a call for service. The attending member was traveling on Bay Street towards East Main Street. Upon crossing the train tracks at East Main the police officer lost control of the police vehicle. The vehicle struck a concrete barrier that was not anchored to the ground. This barrier careened across the parking lot of Webb’s Superstore coming to rest against the store. Due to the size of the barrier significant property damage was caused to the store.

The attending member was transported to St. Martha’s Regional Hospital where they received treatment and was released. Road conditions at the time were snow covered and slippery in spots.

The accident remains under investigation by the local RCMP.
