No charges laid in police pursuit that preceded crash in Mississauga


The province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) will not be laying any charges regarding a police pursuit in Mississauga.

On April 17, 2020, a Honda Accord collided with a dump truck at the intersection of Mavis Road and the eastbound exit ramp of Highway 401.

A 21 year old female passenger in the Honda broke a finger as a result.

“Moments before the collision, an Ontario Provincial Police officer had attempted to pull over the Honda for a speeding infraction and then briefly pursued the vehicle,” the SIU said.

According to Joseph Martino, Director of the SIU, there are no reasonable grounds to believe that the officer committed a criminal offence in connection with the collision.

As a result, the SIU will not be pressing charges.

The SIU is an arm's length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury, or allegations of sexual assault.
