Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating the circumstances around the death of a 28-year-old man they say died in an Ottawa vehicle crash after a police chase.
The Special Investigations Unit says an Ontario Provincial Police officer was doing radar enforcement in the area of Highway 416 before 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
The SIU says the officer saw a driver allegedly speeding and pursued the vehicle.
It says he stopped pursuing the car, but later found the vehicle after the driver had hit a pole.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
The SIU is urging anyone with information to contact them.
