Cape Breton Post - - HOT ONLINE -

SYD­NEY — The Se­ri­ous In­ci­dent Re­sponse Team is in­ves­ti­gat­ing an in­jury suf­fered by the pas­sen­ger of a truck that was stopped by Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice on Mon­day. At ap­prox­i­mately 4:30 p.m., as the re­sult of a call from another driver, a marked po­lice ve­hi­cle at­tempted to pull over a truck trav­el­ling north on Ge­orge Street. The truck turned onto Edgar Street and then onto Donna Drive. At that point the passen- ger had ex­ited the ve­hi­cle, and was found by po­lice in­jured. He was treated at hos­pi­tal for a frac­tured leg. He has since been re­manded into cus­tody on charges re­lat­ing to breach­ing a court or­der. The driver has been charged with var­i­ous Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle Act of­fences. As a re­sult of the in­jury, po­lice con­tacted the Se­ri­ous In­ci­dent Re­sponse Team to re­port the in­ci­dent. Any­one who wit­nessed the in­ci­dent is asked to con­tact the Se­ri­ous In­ci­dent Re­sponse Team toll- free at 1- 855- 4502010. The Se­ri­ous In­ci­dent Re­sponse Team is re­spon­si­ble for in­ves­ti­gat­ing all se­ri­ous in­ci­dents in­volv­ing po­lice in Nova Sco­tia, whether or not there is an al­le­ga­tion of wrong­do­ing.
