A Vancouver police officer has been charged with driving without due care and attention.
The charge relates to a police pursuit that took place on Sept. 12, 2018, when a suspect was fleeing a crime scene on a bicycle, the BC Prosecution Service said Thursday.
The police vehicle, driven by Const. John Pankratz, collided with the bicycle, and the suspect was hurt.
The Independent Investigations Office, which looks into incidents of death and serious harm involving police in B.C., determined there were reasonable grounds to believe Pankratz had committed an offence.
His first appearance was scheduled for Oct. 7.
