Special Investigations Unit probing death of a man in Midland

Struck by unmarked police cruiser

Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is investigating the death of a man struck early Tuesday by a police cruiser in Midland.

Initial reports suggest an unmarked police vehicle was on Highway 12 approaching Jones Road just after midnight when the man was struck.

The SIU says the officer provided first aid until Emergency Medical Services took over care of the man. He succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

The victim has been identified as a 35-year-old man from Pembroke.
