OPP officer charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm

Cruiser driven by OPP constable collided with civilian vehicle in Johnstown, Ont., in June

An Ontario Provincial Police constable based in Brockville, Ont., has been charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm after a crash south of Ottawa in June.

At around 9 p.m. on Friday, June 10, a Leeds County OPP cruiser collided with a vehicle at the intersection of County Road 2 and Mary Street in Johnstown, Ont., just east of the community of Prescott.

Johnstown is about 90 kilometres south of Ottawa.

The driver of the civilian vehicle was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, OPP said at the time. The officer was taken to hospital with minor injuries and later released.

Ontario's Special Investigations Unit — which looks into cases of death, serious injury or sexual assault involving police in the province — was called in to investigate.

The SIU has now charged Const. Timothy Jackson with one count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

He is scheduled to appear in court in Brockville on Jan. 6.

OPP constable charged in connection with crash in Johnstown

Civilian sustained serious injuries in June collision; officer to appear in court Jan. 6

The director of Ontario's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has concluded that there are reasonable grounds to believe that an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer committed a criminal offence in connection with a crash that occurred in Johnstown in June, it was announced on Friday.

Constable Timothy Jackson faces one count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm. The officer is scheduled to appear in Brockville court on Jan. 6.

Responding to a call, Jackson was operating an OPP cruiser that was eastbound on County Road 2 when it collided with an eastbound Honda that was attempting to make a left turn at Mary Street shortly before 9 p.m. on Friday, June 10. Both vehicles ended up in the north ditch. The 63-year-old local man driving the Honda sustained serious injuries in the crash and was later airlifted to Kingston General Hospital. The constable sustained minor injuries to one hand, according to an SIU release in June.

"The matter is now properly before the courts," states the SIU release issued on Dec. 16. "In consideration of the fair trial interests of the accused, the SIU will make no further comment pertaining to this investigation."

The SIU had assigned three investigators, two forensic investigators and two collision reconstructionists to the matter.

When contacted on Friday afternoon, an OPP spokesperson was unable to confirm Constable Jackson's current status with the provincial police service.

OPP officer charged in Johnstown crash

Postby Thomas » Sat Dec 17, 2016 6:49 am

A local Ontario Provincial Police officer has been charged in connection with a vehicle collision in Johnstown in June that left a man seriously injured.

The province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) on Friday announced that OPP Constable Timothy Jackson is facing one count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm, in relation to the incident that happened Friday, June 10.

The charge follows the SIU investigation into a collision between an OPP police vehicle and a civilian vehicle on County Road 2, at Mary Street in Johnstown.

“The matter is now properly before the courts. In consideration of the fair trial interests of the accused, the SIU will make no further comment pertaining to this investigation,” SIU officials stated in a media release.

The accused is to appear in court in Brockville on January 6.

Cst. Suzanne Runciman, of the OPP’s Prescott detachment, said Jackson was with the Grenville detachment at the time of the incident but subsequently transferred out.

“He had his transfer letter prior to that incident,” added Runciman.

She referred all other questions on the matter to Acting Sgt. Angie Atkinson, of the OPP’s East Region. Atkinson, however, had no further details on the matter when reached Friday, including Jackson’s current posting and status or the medical status of the victim.

In June, the SIU said preliminary information suggested that, shortly before 9 p.m. on June 10, an OPP officer was responding to a call.

The officer was driving east along County Road 2 when, at Mary Street, the officer’s cruiser collided with a vehicle that was turning left from County Road 2 onto Mary Street.

The 63-year-old male driver of the vehicle suffered serious injuries, added the SIU. He was taken to Brockville General Hospital and then airlifted to Kingston General Hospital. The officer suffered minor injuries to one hand.

The SIU designated one subject officer and three witness officers as part of its investigation. The agency also designated three investigators, two forensic investigators and two collision reconstructionists to the incident.

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.

Under the Police Services Act, the director of the SIU must consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation depending on the evidence and lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate.

The Johnstown incident was one of a series in the region this year that involved the SIU.

The agency recently opened an investigation involving the Grenville OPP. Early on the morning of November 14, a detachment officer and a female suspect both suffered injuries while the woman was being driven to a local detachment.

Atkinson said at the time an “interaction” between the suspect and officer on the way to the detachment left both injured.

In October, the SIU began investigating a collision involving an OPP cruiser and two other vehicles on Highway 401 near Lansdowne. Two people suffered minor injuries in the collision, while the officer in the cruiser was taken to hospital as a precaution.

And in August, the SIU began investigating an incident involving the OPP and an injured 66-year-old man following a residential search in the Athens area.

An 18-year-old man was killed in a collision following a short police pursuit just outside Smiths Falls in May, a case that also prompted an SIU probe.
