Mississauga (9 April, 2014) --- Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is probing the circumstances surrounding the injuries sustained by a 33-year-old man late last night in Toronto.

Preliminary information indicates the following:
• On Tuesday, April 8, 2014, at approximately 11:40 p.m. an officer with the Toronto Police Service attempted to stop a vehicle on Queen Street in Toronto.
• The vehicle was later involved in a collision and rolled over in a parking lot on McCaul Street, north of Baldwin Street.
• The driver of the vehicle suffered serious injuries and was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital for treatment.

The SIU has assigned three investigators, two forensic investigators and one collision reconstructionist to probe the circumstances of this incident.
