An Ontario Provincial Police officer has been charged under the Highway Traffic Act after a motor vehicle collision in Welland earlier this week.

At about 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, July 14 officers from the Niagara Detachment of the OPP Highway Safety Division investigated a collision Hwy. 140 at Enterprise Road in Welland.

The collision involved an on-duty marked OPP cruiser and a civilian vehicle. Neither the officer, nor the other driver, a 59-year-old Port Colborne resident were injured.

An OPP media release says the police vehicle was northbound on Hwy. 140 and was engaged in traffic enforcement. During a manoeuvre, the cruiser came into contact with another vehicle resulting in property damage to both vehicles.

The highway was closed from 10:30 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. to facilitate the investigation.

Provincial Constable Gavin Cox, a two-year member of the OPP, currently assigned to the Niagara Detachment, has been charged with making an unsafe lane change.
