16-year-old drier sped away from RIDE stop
0 0

Ontario's Special Investigations Unit says there are no reasonable grounds to charge an OPP officer in connection with a fatal crash in Mississauga last fall.

A 16 year old male was killed on November 23rd after crashing his Honda Civic into a hydro pole (at Hurontario St. and Dundas Ave) at high speed.

An SIU investigation says the teen had briefly talked to officers at a RIDE stop, then sped away, running a red light and eventually hitting the pole at between 160 and 180 kilometres per hour.

The SIU says officers suspected the teen had been drinking and initially gave chase with their lights flashing, the lead cruiser hitting 144-kilometres per hour in a 50 zone before ending the pursuit.

SIU Director Tony Loparco says that given the facts of the case criminal charges against the officers involved are not warranted.
