Two suffer serious, non-life threatening injuriesThe province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has invoked its mandate in an early morning Brampton crash involving a Peel Regional Police cruiser and a car.
The collision happened around 5:40 a.m. just south of the intersection of Main Street and Williams Parkway, according to the SIU. The driver and passenger of a Honda Civic were taken to Brampton Civic Hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. The men, a 20-year-old driver and his 27-year-old passenger, were both later transferred to Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
The police officer suffered minor injuries and he also went to Brampton Civic Hospital for treatment.
The SIU said the officer was southbound on Main Street when the collision occurred. One subject officer and one witness officer have been designated by the SIU.
The SIU investigates police-involved incidents that result in serious injuries.
Peel’s Major Collision Bureau is investigating. Main Street and lanes on Williams Parkway were shut for several hours. Police said it’s too early to say if charges will be laid.
Visible in the back seat of the Honda were several metal drums or kegs, but it has not been revealed what was in the containers. The damaged vehicles ended up in front of a Brampton Transit bus shelter.
