The province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has invoked its mandate regarding a recent incident in Mississauga involving Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).

Around 1:30 p.m. on Friday, April 17, police say an officer from the OPP Port Credit detachment was conducting speed enforcement on Highway 401, east of Mavis Road.

“The officer attempted to stop a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed. The vehicle exited off at Mavis Road and was involved in a two vehicle collision,” police say.

One occupant sustained injuries in the collision.

The OPP notified the SIU, which has invoked its mandate and is currently investigating this incident.

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.

The investigation is currently ongoing.
