(PERTH EAST, ON) - The Special Investigations Unit has invoked its mandate after a three vehicle collision last week.
On November 19 2020, just before 6:00 a.m., the Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a call after a citizen located a suspicious person in a vehicle at their residential farm property on Perth Line 40, between Road 108 and Road 109, in the Township of Perth East.
The Perth County OPP responded and during the interaction with police, a collision occurred involving two unoccupied fully-marked OPP cruisers and a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). The lone occupant of the SUV was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Perth East Fire Department and Perth County Paramedic Services assisted in the response.
The OPP has notified the province's Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which has invoked its mandate. As a result, the OPP will not be able to provide any further information. Any other inquiries should be directed to SIU Communications at (416) 622-2342.
