B.C.’s police watchdog has been called to Squamish after an RCMP officer hit a pedestrian Tuesday night along Highway 99.

The officer notified dispatch and began to provide medical assistance, RCMP said in a release.

The Independent Investigations Office has been deployed, but has yet to comment.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact the IIO at 1-855-446-8477.
