SIU investigating August crash in Hamilton’s east end

Ontario’s police watchdog is seeking help from the public in connection with a late-night motor vehicle collision in late August in Stoney Creek that involved a Toronto police officer.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) says the incident happened on Aug. 20 at the entrance to Felker’s Falls Park.

Detectives say Hamilton police responded to the call around 11 p.m. after a vehicle crashed on Audubon Street North and Ackland Street.
