Cumberland County RCMP have charged a commercial truck driver after the truck struck a police vehicle that was parked on the side of highway 104 in Salt Springs, N.S., Monday.

On Aug. 2, around 2:45 p.m. police were attending an unrelated collision on the 104, when a commercial truck struck a police vehicle from behind. The police car was using its hazard lights, police said.

The officer in the vehicle during the incident sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital, but was later released. The commercial truck driver was unharmed.

After striking the police vehicle, the truck went into the ditch.
