Police car flips on side after collision on Highway 1 in Abbotsford

A crash involving an RCMP freeway patrol member took place this morning on Highway 1 in Abbotsford.

The incident occurred just after 6 a.m. in the eastbound lanes at McDermott Road in Abbotsford between the patrol car and another vehicle.
