The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is investigating after a pedestrian was hit by a police cruiser in Hamilton on Monday. A 74-year-old woman was crossing Dundurn Street at the King Street intersection around 3:30 p.m., the SIU says.
A cruiser driven by a Hamilton Police Service officer was headed west. The SIU says the officer tried to turn south on Dundurn when the cruiser hit the woman.
She was taken to hospital with a leg injury.
Three investigators, one forensic investigator and a collision reconstructionist are looking into the incident, the SIU says. Anyone with information about the incident can call 1-800-787-8529.
