OPP officer cleared by SIU in injury to man during pursuit in Innisfil

SIU invokes mandate in fatal Tiny Township crash

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has cleared an OPP officer of wrongdoing in a collision involving a police vehicle in Innisfil in July.

SIU investigating after ‘man struck by OPP officer in pickup truck in Innisfil’

A 30-year-old man was struck, and left with a brain injury, while fleeing from his vehicle, which had veered into a ditch near Innisfil Heights Drive and Commerce Park Drive.

The SIU concludes the man, who was being pursued on a drug-related matter, would have been only briefly visible to the officer before the impact.

SIU Director Joseph Martino said the collision “might well be characterized as more the product of his frenzied attempt to get away, even after he had crashed his vehicle, than it was any dangerous driving or excessive speed by the officer.”
