Four Mounties were hospitalized Saturday after being involved in a police vehicle crash in west-central Saskatchewan. The members of the Onion Lake RCMP detachment were involved in a crash at around 4 p.m. CT while attempting to make an arrest.

The suspect was an adult male who was spotted in a park in the community, but fled in a vehicle when police arrived. While attempting to stop the suspect vehicle, two police vehicles collided, causing one of them to roll onto its passenger side.

All RCMP members involved were taken to Lloydminster Hospital as a precaution and have since been released.
