Man killed after car collides with cruiser
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.
