SIU Investigating Deaths Of Two Men In Collision In Peterborough

PETERBOROUGH-The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths of two men in a collision last night in Peterborough.

Preliminary information from the SIU suggests the following:
• At approximately 9:36 p.m. on January 28, 2022, a Peterborough Police Service officer was driving on Lansdowne Street en route to a call. While en route, the driver of another vehicle went through a red light at Park Street. The officer turned around and activated their emergency lights to pursue the vehicle. After losing sight of the vehicle, the officer discontinued the pursuit and resumed travel to the initial call.
  • Later, the driver of the vehicle that fled was involved in a collision with another vehicle at Lansdowne Street and Webber Avenue.
  • The two male occupants of the fleeing vehicle, aged 38 and 41 years old, were located deceased at the scene.
  • Two women in the vehicle that was struck were taken to hospital and diagnosed with no injuries.

Four investigators and two forensic investigators have been assigned to the case. One subject official has been designated at this time
