One person is in hospital after Durham Regional Police sources say a driver fleeing police crashed into a minivan.
The incident happened around 12 p.m. Thursday in Oshawa.
A Lexus was observed by witnesses driving at a high rate of speed down Bruce Street, when police sources say the driver slammed into a southbound Dodge minivan on Celina Street.
The driver of the minivan was taken to a Toronto trauma hospital. The suspect was seen fleeing the scene, and was later arrested with another individual.
The Special Investigations Unit (SIU), Ontario’s police watchdog, has been called in to investigate because the driver was being chased by officers.
In an update Friday morning, the SIU said Durham police was attempting a traffic stop of the Lexus, that was believed to be stolen, when the crash occurred with the minivan.
The SIU said a 63-year-old man driving the Dodge was taken to hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
Along with the two people arrested, investigators say they may be looking for other individuals.
A collision reconstruction team was called in to examine the scene, using a drone to survey the area.
Durham police are asking for any witnesses to come forward.
