Man sent to hospital after being run over by R.C.M.P. cruiser

The RCMP is investigating after a man was run over by one of its cruisers in Moncton Sunday night.

Mounties say it happened as they arrived at a residence following a report of a possible domestic dispute.

Cpl. Julie Rogers-Marsh says the vehicle was travelling at a slow speed at the time and that officer couldn't see the man who was dressed in dark clothing and had laid down on the road.   

The man received non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to hospital.
