No Charges Issued Against Police in Relation to Brampton Collision that Injured Two Men

Case Number: 16-OVI-326

Mississauga, ON (1 March, 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against a Peel Regional Police officer in relation to the serious injuries sustained by two men in December of 2016 when a speeding vehicle - earlier being pursued by police – collided with another vehicle. As a result of the crash, the 26-year-old driver of the speeding vehicle sustained a cracked vertebrae and internal bleeding, and the 61-year-old driver of the second civilian vehicle was assessed as having sustained fractured ribs and bruising to his heart.
