No Criminal Charges in Relation to Injuries Sustained by Man in Caledon Collision
Case Number: 17-PVI-207
(10 October, 2018) ---
In the afternoon hours of August 10, 2017, an individual reported to 911 that a Lamborghini was being driven southbound on Highway 10 at a high rate of speed. An Ontario Provincial Police officer with the Caledon detachment located the vehicle and pursued it, but then pulled his cruiser onto the shoulder of the road after losing sight of the vehicle. The officer started his cruiser up again. In the area of McLaughlin Road and Boston Mills Road, the officer located the Lamborghini in a ditch. The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against the officer in relation to the serious injury sustained by the 32-year-old driver of the vehicle.
The Director’s Report was delivered to the Attorney General, as is required by law under the Police Services Act. The Attorney General has directed that the document be posted online.
