Thunder Bay police say charge "anticipated" in cruiser collision

Thunder Bay police are investigating a collision involving a police car Thursday night.

Thunder Bay police say "it is anticipated that a charge is pending" in a collision involving a police cruiser Thursday night.

A marked cruiser and another vehicle collided at the intersection of Arthur and Franklin Streets, just after 7:30 p.m., police reported.

In a news release issued Friday, police said that "two female drivers and two female children passengers" were taken to hospital, treated for minor injuries and released. 

They said traffic officers are continuing to investigate the collision and that more details will be released next week.  

This is the second collision involving a police cruiser in three weeks.

In March, a police car was on its way to a robbery call when it collided with a Subaru sedan at Waterloo Street and Victoria Avenue.
