The province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is appealing for witnesses to a collision and the arrest of a 25-year-old man in Brantford in mid-January.
Preliminary information suggests the following:
- At approximately 9:30 p.m. on January 17, 2023, a Chevrolet Uplander left the Brantford Commons plaza. The driver traveled south on King George Road and then east on Dunsdon Street. At Dunsdon Street and Winding Way, the vehicle struck a tree.
- The man fled the vehicle on foot, and was subsequently arrested by police on Edinburgh Court.
- The man was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with a serious injury.
The SIU is appealing for witnesses to the vehicle’s route of travel to the area of the collision, and to the arrest of the man to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 or online at: https://siu.on.ca/en/appeals.php.
The SIU is particularly interested in speaking with a man in his early 20s who was in the area and assisted in apprehending the man. He was wearing a puffy hooded winter jacket, and a backpack, at the time of the incident (photo below).
