UPDATE: Victoria officer in hospital with serious injuries after being hit by car

Pandora Avenue has reopened to traffic

One officer is in hospital with serious injures after being struck by a stolen vehicle during a police incident in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue Monday morning.

A witness at the scene told Black Press Media they saw the Victoria Police Department pursuing a black car before an officer was struck.

VicPD confirmed in an update at 11:30 a.m. that an officer standing beside a police vehicle was struck from behind by another vehicle at 8:30 a.m. But the department has not disclosed any details of the initial incident.

In a later tweet, the department noted the vehicle was stolen and the suspect was not injured during the incident.

No other officers were injured at the scene and the injured officer was transported to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

One person was arrested at the scene.

Pandora Avenue was closed between Quadra and Vancouver streets for an investigation into the incident and reopened to traffic shortly after noon.

The investigation is ongoing.
