The province’s police watchdog is investigating after a man suspected of being impaired was injured after he crashed his electric scooter into an unmarked police cruiser in Toronto overnight.

The Special Investigations Unit says in the early morning hours of May 16, two plainclothes police officers were conducting an investigation and were traveling in an unmarked vehicle when they became involved in a crash with an e-bike in the Queen Street West and Niagara Street area.

The 39-year-old man on the e-scooter – who was not part of the investigation – got into an altercation with the undercover officers and was arrested.

The man complained about an injury to his leg and he was taken to hospital for a serious but non-life-threatening injury. No other injuries were reported.

Police said the man has been charged with impaired operation of a scooter.

The SIU is an independent government agency that investigates the conduct of police officers in incidents that may have resulted in death, serious injury, sexual assault or the discharge of a firearm at a person.
