A police cruiser has crashed into the Robin Hood Pub and Bistro in Newton.

At about 3:30 p.m. Friday, an RCMP cruiser swerved over the patio and through the wall of the pub, witness Allen Morton said.

It's his understanding the cruiser had its lights going at the time, indicating the officer was on a call or in pursuit of another vehicle at the time of the accident.

Morton also said the police officer claimed to be cut off, which sent his vehicle over the patio and through the wall of the pub.

There were about 75 people in the pub at the time. No one, including the officer, was injured in the accident.

The officer was the lone occupant of the vehicle at the time.

Further details as they become known.
