Update: SIU Investigation into Fatal Brampton Collision

Case Number: 20-OVD-142

Mississauga, ON (19 June, 2020) ---
The SIU continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding a fatal collision that occurred yesterday in Brampton. As a result of the collision, a 37-year-old woman and her three daughters – ages one, four and six – tragically lost their lives. At the request of the family, the Unit is not releasing the names of any individuals at this time. This is in accordance with the SIU’s name release policy which requires consent from next of kin.

As of today:
  • Five investigators, three forensic investigators and one collision reconstructionist from the SIU have been assigned to the case. 
  • One subject officer and one witness officer – both from Peel Regional Police – have been designated.
  • More than one dozen civilian witnesses have been interviewed, and video footage from various sources has been retrieved.
  • At the scene, roadway evidence was collected and measurements were taken. The subject officer’s cruiser will be examined for data.
  • A 20-year-old man in another vehicle was seriously injured. He remains in hospital in serious condition. As the SIU does not have consent, his name will not be released at this time.

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 independent civilian 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.
