Const. Vince Tremblay, 57, was charged with turn not in safety.

OPP officer hurt in crash

Postby Thomas » Sat Apr 14, 2018 6:38 am

SMITHS FALLS -- An Ontario Provincial Police officer suffered minor injuries when a cruiser was involved in a collision with another vehicle near here Tuesday afternoon.

At approximately 5:35 p.m., members of the Leeds County detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police responded to a two-vehicle collision on County Road 29, south of Otterdale Crescent in the former South Elmsley Township, police reported Wednesday.

Police were releasing few details but said one of the vehicles involved was an OPP marked cruiser, while the other was a grey Chevrolet SUV.

The officer suffered minor injuries and the driver and passenger of the SUV were taken to hospital as a precaution, also with minor injuries.

The OPP said Wednesday that "charges may be pending," but did not specify whether those pending charges were against the OPP officer or the civilian driver.

"The investigation is still continuing," OPP Cst. Roop Sandhu replied in an email to The Recorder and Times.

However, he added the situation did not meet the mandate of the province's Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which is usually called in when someone is hurt or killed in a police-involved incident, which could suggest investigators may be looking at the civilian as responsible.

OPP officer charged with unsafe turn after crash in Leeds

Postby Thomas » Sat Apr 14, 2018 6:39 am

A 25-year veteran OPP officer could face two demerit points and a $110 fine after a crash that involved a police cruiser in Leeds.

Const. Vince Tremblay, 57, was charged with making an unsafe turn under the Highway Traffic Act on Friday, two days after the crash on County Road 29 dealt minor injuries to himself and occupants of another vehicle.

A charge under the Highway Traffic Act is not criminal, but may carry penalties such as fines, demerit points or licence suspension.

Police said Tremblay was in a marked OPP car on Wednesday evening when he saw a speeding vehicle going the opposite direction from him.

Police said he turned on his emergency lights and went to the right shoulder of the road to allegedly make a U-turn. While he was doing so, a grey SUV collided with Tremblay’s cruiser.

The 17-year-old driver of the SUV and her passenger were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

OPP spokesman Const. Roop Sandhu said he was not aware if Tremblay would also face disciplinary action at work.
