Mississauga (3 April, 2012) --- The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is probing the circumstances surrounding the injuries sustained by a 57-year-old man.
On March 30, 2012, at approximately 7:30 a.m., Ontario Provincial Police received a call about a man driving eastbound along Highway 401 in an erratic manner. He was operating a beige Chevrolet Cavalier. Officers observed the vehicle on Highway 401 near Whites Road and attempted to stop it. A short time later, the vehicle did come to a stop. Officers became involved with the driver. He was taken to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre for treatment.
The SIU is looking for anyone who may have witnessed these events to contact the lead investigator at 416-622-1925 or 1-800-787-8529 extension 1925.
The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must
- consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation
- depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
- report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
