SIU Appealing for Witnesses to Mississauga Collision

Case Number: 22-TVI-109   

Mississauga, ON (14 April, 2022) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding a collision on Tuesday evening that resulted in serious injuries to a 24-year-old man.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • On the evening of April 12, 2022, Toronto Police Service officers responded to the area of Aukland Road and Dundas Street West after receiving a report of a man on foot causing a disturbance in traffic. 
  • Officers located the male, who had by this time entered a vehicle. As the officers followed the vehicle, the driver became involved in multiple collisions. He was eventually apprehended.
  • As a result of one of the collisions in the area of Queensway East and Dixie Road, a man waiting at the intersection in a vehicle sustained a serious injury. He was taken to hospital for treatment.

Three investigators and one collision reconstructionist have been assigned to the case. 

The SIU is urging anyone who may have information about this investigation, including video or photos, to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 or online at: https://siu.on.ca/en/appeals.php

The SIU is an independent government agency that investigates the conduct of officials (police officers as well as special constables with the Niagara Parks Commission and peace officers with the Legislative Protective Service) that may have resulted in death, serious injury, sexual assault and/or the discharge of a firearm at a person. All investigations are conducted by SIU investigators who are civilians. Under the Special Investigations Unit Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether the official has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, cause a criminal charge to be laid against the official where grounds exist for doing so, or close the file without any charges being laid
  • publicly report the results of its investigations
