SIU calls off investigation into incident involving OPP near Gravenhurst
The Special Investigations Unit has called off an investigation into how a man was seriously hurt near Gravenhurst back in the spring. The SIU investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury, or allegations of sexual assault.
On May 26th the 43-year-old from Toronto was driving a stolen vehicle which was involved in a crash on Highway 11 north just south of Gravenhurst. The SIU says the man fled the scene and hid in the woods nearby then fell from a cliff and hurt his ankle before being found and arrested.
The SIU brought the investigation to an end because that injury happened before police contact and the man suffered no serious injuries during the course of his arrest.
