SIU Investigates Motor Vehicle Collision in Ottawa

Case Number: 10-OVI-035

Mississauga (14 March, 2010) --- The Special Investigations (SIU) is investigating the circumstances surrounding a motor vehicle collision that occurred on Highway 417 near the Woodroffe Avenue interchange in Ottawa.

On Sunday, March 14, 2010, shortly after midnight, a red Honda Civic collided with a black, unmarked, Ottawa Police Service SUV that was stopped on the shoulder of the westbound lanes of Highway 417.

The adult female occupant of the Honda Civic was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The SIU is appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident to contact the Unit at 416-641-1872 or 1-800-787-8529 ext. 1872.

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.
