  • B.C. woman seriously hurt in traffic stop

British Columbia's police watchdog says a woman suffered potentially life-threatening injuries after she was pulled over in a traffic stop in Castlegar on Saturday.

The Independent Investigations Office says an officer ordered the woman who was riding an electric scooter to pull over late Saturday.

The office, which investigates all cases of serious injury or death involving the police, says in a statement that a check turned up an outstanding warrant for the woman's arrest.

The office says it has been told an "interaction" occurred as the RCMP officer attempted to take the woman into custody.

Police say the injury was reportedly self-inflicted.

The oversight agency is appealing for witnesses as it continues its investigation.
