The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. has now filed a report with B.C. Prosecution Services asking them to consider filing charges against the officer or officers involved.

Around 10 p.m. on May 18, 2018, the Vancouver Police Department reported that there was a collision between a police vehicle and cyclist at the intersection of West 46th Avenue and Oak Street in Vancouver.

The cyclist’s injuries were initially thought to be minor, but they turned out to have “constituted serious harm,” according to IIO.
