Case Number: 15-OVI-264

Mississauga (10 November, 2015) ---
Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is appealing for witnesses to a collision at Colborne and Dalhousie Streets in Brantford early this morning.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • Shortly before 1:00 a.m., near George and Dalhousie Streets, Brantford Police pulled over a Ford F150 truck with four occupants.
  • An officer was inspecting the truck when the truck sped away eastbound on Dalhousie Street. 
  • A short time later, the truck collided with a van in the area of Dalhousie and Colborne Streets.
  • A 35-year-old woman in the van was taken to hospital with a fractured pelvis.  She has been released from hospital.
  • A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection with this incident.   
 
The SIU has designated one subject officer and three witness officers.

Three investigators, two forensic investigators and one traffic reconstructionist have been assigned to investigate this incident. 

The SIU is urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact the lead investigator at 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.
