The Independent Investigation Unit had to investigate an RCMP pursuit after a 26-year-old man sustained injuries when his car went into the ditch east of Swan River.

RCMP were alerted to a vehicle being driven by a suspect who’d made threats against a woman and could be armed.

Swan River RCMP located the vehicle on Highway 20 near Camperville where a high-speed chase began.

During the pursuit, the suspect crashed into a ditch and was then taken to the Dauphin Hospital where it was determined he had a chest fracture.

The IIU, under their own regulations, was mandated to investigate because of the fracture and admission to a hospital.

It has been concluded the RCMP aren’t responsible for the man crashing into the ditch.

No charges will be laid against any officers involved in the pursuit.
