Ontario’s police watchdog says charges are not warranted in a high-speed chase and crash in Hamilton that left two teens dead in 2017.
The Special Investigations Unit report was released Friday, on the one-year anniversary of the crash.
Waterloo Regional Police were called after a witness reported an assault and possible abduction shortly after 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 5, 2017.
According to the SIU report, a witness told a 911 dispatcher: “I’m just witnessing a man beating the living daylights out of a young lady.”
The caller then said the man appeared to force the girl into the car.
Police tracked the vehicle, a red Pontiac, which was determined to be stolen.
It didn’t stop when officers tried to pull it over. Police pursued the vehicle into Hamilton.
It was travelling on Highway 6 near Campbellville Rd. when it crossed into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a truck.
