Man killed after car collides with cruiser
GATINEAU, QUE. - Quebec police have released the name of the Ottawa man killed in a head-on collision with a Gatineau police car early Friday morning.

Kenneth Peter Robertson, 31, died in the crash.

Police said Robertson was apparently on his way home from work at time of the accident. Two Gatineau police officers, aged 22 and 23, were sent to hospital with fractures after the collision.

They were responding to a call when the cruiser and the car collided on St-Louis Street.

The Sûreté du Québec has been called in to investigate. Standard procedure calls for another force to be called in when officers are involved in an incident where someone is injured or killed.

On Friday afternoon, investigators were still trying to determine the cause of the accident.
