Crash Kills Canadian Corrections Officer Transporting Inmates

November 07, 2014  | 

A Canadian corrections officer is dead and six inmates injured after a crash 45 kilometres south of The Pas, Manitoba, on Highway 10, according to Manitoba RCMP.

The victim's family has identified the officer as 44-year-old Rhonda Commodore. CBC was told she was the single mother of a young son.

RCMP say Commodore died when she was thrown from a Manitoba Corrections van she was a passenger in at around 9:45 a.m. Thursday. The van crashed into a ditch and rolled before coming to a complete stop.

The driver, a 43-year-old male officer, is in stable condition and six inmates were sent to the hospital following the crash. The inmates sustained minor injuries, according to RCMP.

Please I hope this is not a case of another law enforcement officer not wearing their seat belt. Why is it OK for us to enforce laws such as seat belt use yet there are those who fail to buckle up themselves??? If you are a cop who fails to use your seat belt please go into another profession as you, my friend, are a hypocrite.

LEO, I have news for you, we are all hypocrites. Also, wearing your seat belt isn't always against the law. You have to know that right?

I am worried because my fiance was being transfered from Minnesota to mi in a transport van and its been over a week I haven't heard from him, and he hasn't made it yet to Mich. He missed a couple payments for child support. They say the transport van drives everywhere picking up inmates. You would think they would know if they were in an accident and inform people ugggggg

That was not for you, that was for those who want to survive a survivable crash. You are another wall, I may have to try to attend you funeral if you are ejected. Sheesh.
