The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has been called in to investigate a crash in Brampton involving two police cruisers.
Emergency officials were called to the area of Queen Street East and Main Street South for a report of a stolen vehicle at about 6:30 p.m. on Sunday night.
During a police pursuit, a collision occurred between cruisers and a car and two suspects were taken into custody.
The SIU says one of the two suspects, a 46-year-old male sitting in the car’s passenger’s seat, suffered a serious injury and was taken to hospital.
On Monday morning, evidence markers and about 11 Peel Regional Police cruisers filled the area.
Peel Regional Police confirmed that the province’s police watchdog invoked its mandate on the case.
The SIU is an arm’s length agency that is called in to investigate any incident involving police and a member of the public that results in death, serious injury, or an allegation of sexual assault.
Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-787-8529.
