SIU investigating after cyclist hit by police cruiser in Scarborough

Erin Criger | posted Tuesday, Jul 26th, 2016

The province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has been called in after a cyclist was struck by a Toronto police cruiser in Scarborough.

The cyclist was struck on Kennedy Road near Merrian Road, south of Eglinton Avenue, just after midnight on Tuesday morning.

He has serious injuries to his head and upper torso.

No police officers were injured.

It’s not known how the collision occurred, or if the officers were responding to a call at the time.

Kennedy is closed for the investigation.

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.
