A Kelowna RCMP officer was taken to hospital Monday evening after a crash with a semi-trailer on Highway 33. 

It happened at around 6:00 pm near Loseth Drive where police say an unmarked RCMP SUV - on its way to a call - collided with a tractor trailer.

The constable with the Police Dog Services - and his dog - were pulled from the wreckage by firefighters using the jaws of life. 

The officer suffered serious injuries - his dog is being assessed by a vet. The semi driver suffered non-life threatening injuries. 

The crash remains under investigation.
