MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Police say an early-morning collision between a police cruiser and another vehicle has sent an officer and two suspects to hospital.
Peel Regional Police Const. Iryna Yashnyk says it happened Thursday morning while officers were responding to a call for an alleged break-and-enter at a shopping mall west of Toronto.
She says the collision happened in the parking lot of the Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, Ont., shortly before 4 a.m.
Yashnyk describes the officer’s injuries as minor, and says the extent of the injuries sustained by the suspects has not yet been determined.
Police say Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit has invoked its mandate and taken over the case.
The SIU investigates incidents involving police in which someone is killed, injured or accused of sexual assault.
