An investigation is underway into an accident involving a logging truck and two RCMP vehicles south of Cowichan Lake.
Three RCMP officers were injured and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The RCMP says a logging truck collided with one of the vehicles and its logs spilled onto the second police vehicle.
