Squalls in the region made for poor driving conditions on Sunday and also contributed to a bad shift for one OPP officer and their cruiser.
Middlesex OPP say an officer responded to a vehicle that went into the centre median on Hwy. 402 east of Centre Rd. Another cruiser and a tow truck were also on scene and all three had their emergency lights activated and there were flares on the road.
Despite all of those measures, a passing motorist hit the first cruiser causing minor damage.
Once that crash involving the civilian vehicle was cleared away, OPP officers say another vehicle hit the same cruiser, this time causing serious damage.
Officials say the officer involved received treatment for minor injuries in hospital and the two drivers who hit the cruiser have been charged with careless driving.
