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.
