SIU investigating crash involving Peel Regional Police cruiser in Brampton
Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating a crash involving a Peel Regional Police cruiser that sent a female youth to hospital Wednesday night.
Special Investigations Unit (SIU) spokesperson Jason Gennaro told Global News the incident happened around 7:30 p.m. in the area of Main St. N. and Vodden St. E. in Brampton.
“The cruiser was involved in a collision with two other vehicles,” Gennaro said. “The police officer as well as a young woman, a driver of one of the vehicles, were taken to hospital with serious injuries.”
Gennaro said the 17-year-old has since been released from hospital. The condition of the police officer is unknown.
The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates any interactions between the public and police that result in death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
