A woman rear-ended a police car in Victoria, B.C. on Saturday because she was texting and driving.

But after hitting the cruiser, she kept on texting:

"I just glt [sic] into an accident OMG."

"I was trying to txt u," she continued.

"Ran into a cop car ...

"OMGGG."

Const. Matt Rutherford said the officer and police dog were not hurt, but the female driver and a child were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect's car suffered damage to its front end, and the driver was issued a $167 ticket for using an electronic device while driving.

The Victoria police department shared a photo of the text exchange on its Twitter account Wednesday night, but deleted the tweet a few hours later after public backlash.
