SIU Terminates Investigation into Injury Sustained by Man Fleeing From Collision Scene in Windsor

Numéro du dossier: 17-OCI-375

Mississauga, ON (8 février 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into the injury sustained by a 36-year-old man in Windsor in December of 2017.

On the morning of December 24, 2017, the man was a passenger in a stolen vehicle that became involved in a collision with another vehicle at the intersection of Empress Street and Westminster Boulevard. Before officers with the Windsor Police Service arrived at the scene, the man, and the female driver of the stolen vehicle, fled the scene on foot. While going over a fence, the man came down on his ankle and injured it. Police located the man and he was transported to hospital for treatment. 
  
Director Loparco said, “The evidence is clear that the man suffered his injury prior to police arrival. Accordingly, I have terminated the investigation into this incident.”
