Edmonton Police and the Strathcona County RCMP are under investigation after a suspect was injured during a car chase.
In the evening of July 25, 2017, Edmonton Police Service officers, with the assistance of the EPS helicopter Air 1, began following what was believed to be a stolen vehicle.
When the vehicle they were following travelled outside Edmonton city limits and into Strathcona County, local Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) were notified and used a spike belt to try to help stop the vehicle.
Even having driven over the spike belt, the vehicle continued driving on and off the road, hitting things until it came to a stop. The driver was arrested after he got out of the vehicle.
It was later determined that the man had a serious injury to his face.
On July 28, 2017, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) was directed to investigate circumstances surrounding the arrest of the un-named 21 year-old man that resulted in an orbital bone fracture.
As ASIRT’s investigation is ongoing, no further information will be released until it's completed.
