Case Number: 17-OVI-300

Mississauga, ON (16 October, 2017) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the vehicle injuries sustained by a 30-year-old passenger on Friday in London.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • At approximately 8:30 p.m. on Friday, October 13, 2017, a London Police Service officer stopped a vehicle at the intersection of Third Street and Culver Drive. 
  • As the officer approached the vehicle on foot, the driver drove away on Culver Drive.
  • The officer reentered the cruiser and went in the same direction.
  • Shortly after, the civilian vehicle became involved in a collision with another vehicle in the area of Culver Drive and Culver Place. 
  • The 30-year-old passenger who was in the vehicle that had initially been stopped by police was taken to hospital for treatment of injuries.

At this time, two investigators have been assigned to this incident.

The SIU is urging anyone who may have information about this investigation to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529. The Unit is also urging anyone who may have any video evidence related to this incident to upload that video through the SIU website.

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
