Mississauga, ON (5 July, 2018) ---
Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit is appealing for witnesses to a motorcycle collision that occurred earlier this week in which a 27-year-old man was seriously injured. 

Preliminary information suggests that at approximately 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3, 2018, an officer with the Toronto Police Service attempted to stop a motorcycle on Kipling Avenue. The motorcyclist was involved in a collision at Rathburn Road and The East Mall and suffered a serious injury. 

The SIU is urging anyone who may have information about this investigation to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 ext. 2293. 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
  • 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.
