MILTON, Ont. — Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating after several people were injured in a multi-vehicle collision that involved a car being pursued by officers.
The Special Investigations Unit says Halton Regional Police Service officers began following the Honda Fit they believed was connected to a break-in in Milton, west of Toronto, just after 12:15 a.m. on Sunday.
The car was later involved in a crash with a pickup truck and another car.
A 21-year-old man who had been driving the Honda was seriously injured and taken to the hospital.
Two occupants of the pickup truck, a male driver and a woman who are both in their 30s, were also taken to hospital.
The civilian agency has assigned two investigators and two forensic investigators to the case, and the team is looking to connect with witnesses or anyone with information about the case.
