It was a close call for a Kingston Police officer and another motorist in the downtown area.
Sometime around 8 a.m. today, a police car with its emergency lights on was heading east on King Street – on the way to a “priority call” on Rideau Street.
At Gore Street, another vehicle drove onto King as the officer approached.
To avoid the other car, the officer swerved and ended up on the lawn of a house.
It’s not known why the other motorist didn’t yield to the police car.
There were no injuries.
The investigation is ongoing.
