SIU Appealing for Witnesses to Brant Collision

Case Number: 20-PVI-156

Mississauga, ON (16 July, 2020) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is appealing for witnesses to a Brant collision that occurred last month, and which resulted in serious injuries to a 36-year-old man.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • At approximately 8:15 p.m. on June 27, 2020, an Ontario Provincial Police officer attempted to stop a vehicle that was traveling south on Newport Road. 
  • The vehicle did not stop.
  • A short time later, at the intersection off Old Greenfield Road and Newport Road, the vehicle went into a ditch and rolled over.
  • The 36-year-old male driver was taken to hospital for treatment of serious injuries.  

Three investigators and two forensic investigators have been assigned to the case. At this time, one subject officer has been designated.

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 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.
