SIU Investigates Collision in Aurora

Case Number: 05-OVI-129

TORONTO (29 August, 2005) --- Investigators with the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) are probing the circumstances surrounding a multi-vehicle collision on August 27, 2005, in Aurora.

The York Regional Police (YRP) notified the SIU that on that date, an YRP officer was conducting moving radar on Wellington Street when he saw a green Cavalier allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed. A short time later, the Cavalier was involved in a collision with a Ford Explorer and an Oldsmobile Alero at the intersection of Wellington and George Streets. All three occupants in the Cavalier were taken to hospital where they were treated for fractures and internal injuries.

The SIU is probing the nature and extent of police involvement in the events leading up to the collision. One YRP officer has been designated as a subject officer. The SIU is appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident to contact the Unit at 416-622-1898 or 1-800-787-8529.

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.
