Mississauga, ON (5 November, 2021) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding a fatal collision that occurred in Brampton early this morning that occurred after a driver fled a traffic stop attempt by an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • At approximately 2:45 a.m., an OPP officer attempted a traffic stop of a vehicle before the driver fled. 
  • The vehicle was then involved in a collision with another vehicle at Sandalwood Parkway East and Dixie Road.
  • Two people were taken to hospital. One person died in hospital.

Three investigators and three forensic investigators have been assigned to the case.
