Collision Between Bus and Car Did Not Result in Serious Injuries; SIU Terminates London Investigation

Case Number: 18-OVI-320

Mississauga, ON (13 December, 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into a collision in October between a car and a bus. Prior to the collision, the driver of the car was being investigated by police. 

On October 30, 2018, a London Police Service officer attempted to stop a vehicle in the area of Waterloo Street and Piccadilly Street. The vehicle did not stop, and a short time later was involved in a collision with a London Transit Commission bus in the Waterloo Street and Oxford Street intersection. The driver of the car fled the scene on foot, but later went to hospital for treatment of injuries.

Director Loparco said, “The medical evidence establishes that the man did not suffer a serious injury. Accordingly, I have terminated the investigation into this incident.”

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.
