As the officer filled out paperwork, a passing vehicle sideswiped the police car and kept driving.

Police described the suspect vehicle as a 2016 or newer white Honda HRV that would have suffered damage to the passenger side mirror.

Investigators said they’re confident that the driver of the Honda knew they hit something, as the brake lights came on immediately following impact.

The vehicle was last seen travelling toward the Second Narrows Bridge.

No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information is asked to please contact Fraser Coast Integrated Road Safety Unit at 604-539-2729. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
