Investigators with the province’s Special Investigations Unit are looking to speak to anyone who may have witnessed a two-vehicle collision on Saturday in Peterborough.  

Preliminary information suggests the following occurred:

  • The police officer attempted to stop the vehicle. 
  • A short time later, at the intersection of Water Street and Parkhill Road West, the vehicle the officer was attempting to stop collided with a second vehicle.
  • The 55-year-old female driver of the second vehicle was taken to hospital and diagnosed with a serious leg injury.
  • The 21-year-old male driver of the first vehicle and his passenger, also a 21-year-old man, were uninjured.    
    
Two investigators have been assigned to investigate this incident.
