Special Investigations Unit probing overnight crash in Tillsonburg that injured one man


Ontario’s police watchdog has been called in to investigate an overnight crash in Tillsonburg that left one man with injuries.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is investigating after Oxford County OPP responded to a collision at 3 a.m. Saturday morning on Broadway Street and Lisgar Avenue in Tillsonburg.

Police say a van struck a hydro pole and arrested a 24-year-old man at the scene.

He was transported to the Tillsonburg OPP detachment where a parallel criminal investigation is ongoing, police said Saturday.

OPP say the man sustained an injury while in police custody and have contacted the province’s police watchdog.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
