Mississauga (17 December, 2012) --- Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is seeking witnesses to events that led up to vehicle injuries suffered by an 18-year-old male in the early morning hours of December 15, 2012.
At approximately 3:00 a.m., an Ontario Provincial Police officer was conducting radar in the area of Triple Bay Road. The officer attempted to make a Highway Traffic Act stop, however the driver continued to drive. At Highway 12 west of Triple Bay Road the civilian vehicle left the roadway and rolled into a ditch.
During the course of the investigation, the SIU has learned that a transport truck and two civilian vehicles may have been on the highway as these events unfolded. SIU investigators are urging the occupants of these vehicles, or anyone else who may have information with respect to the collision to contact the Unit at 416-622-1935 or 1-800-787-8529 ext. 1935.
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.
