However, they did not offer any explanation as to the cause of the crash.

Richmond RCMP responded shortly after the accident and no injuries were reported, according to Cpl. Dennis Hwang.

Both drivers were cooperative and the RCMP has launched an investigation into the cause of the crash.

Photos submitted to social media site Reddit showed that the entire door of the community shuttle had broken off and the rear left corner of the 404 was also scraped off.
