The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding a serious injury sustained this evening by a man in Mississauga. 

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • Shortly before 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 19, 2017, Toronto Police Service officers began following a vehicle in the area of Fairview Road West and Hanson Road. Police had information that an occupant in the vehicle had been involved in a bank robbery.
  • On Hurontario Street, at Rathburn Road, the vehicle became involved in a collision with four other vehicles. The man fled from the vehicle, but was soon after arrested.
  • He was transported to hospital for treatment of a serious injury.

Four investigators, two forensic investigators and one collision reconstructionist have been assigned to this incident.

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.
