Ontario's police watchdog is investigating after an attempted traffic stop by provincial police early Friday ended in a collision that left an uninvolved woman dead and another injured.
According to the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), the incident began around 2:45 a.m., when an OPP officer tried to stop a driver in Brampton.
The driver fled, the SIU said, and then crashed into another vehicle near Dixie Road and Sandalwood Parkway East.
As a result, two people were taken to hospital, including a woman who died shortly after.
The SIU has now identified the woman as 21-year-old Shellome Peart.
"She died in hospital after her vehicle was struck," the SIU said in a news release.
Anyone with information about the incident or dashcam video is asked to contact the SIU 1-800-787-8529.
Peel Regional Police have closed the intersection of Dixie and Sandalwood for further investigation.
