A serious accident occurred in Blainville during a police chase.
At the request of the Bureau of Independent Investigations (BEI), the Sûreté du Québec ( SQ) is mandated to carry out a parallel investigation in connection with a police intervention that occurred Sunday afternoon in Blainville, in the Laurentians.
According to information from the SQ, this is a police intervention in connection with dangerous driving.
A Blainville police officer allegedly tried to intercept a vehicle to check the license plates. The police officer may have mentioned that the vehicle was reported stolen to the authorities.
The investigation was entrusted to the Bureau of Independent Investigations (BEI).
It was then that the vehicle allegedly fled and hit a concrete block at full speed. Around 6 p.m., emergency services were called to the intersection of Boulevard Industriel and Rue Rolland-Brière.
At the end of Sunday evening, the SQ was unable to confirm how many people were present in the vehicle.
Those involved in the accident reportedly sustained significant injuries.
The mandate of the SQ is to shed light on the causes and circumstances of this event while the BEI will have the task of investigating the actions of the police.
The SQ major crimes team is assigned to the case, said SQ spokesman Nicolas Scholtus.
