SIU Burlington OPP police investigation

An ongoing incident involving police along the QEW through Burlington has closed down an off-ramp to traffic.

Ontario’s Special Investigation Unit (SIU) has been called to the scene which took place along the ramp on Brant St. heading in the westbound direction of the highway.

The Ontario Provincial Police say the investigation may lead to several hours of the ramp closure.

Police are being tight-lipped about the incident but it appears vehicles were involved in an altercation with officers.

The SIU is mandated to be called in to investigate when there is an incident involving police where a death, serious injury or an assault has occurred.
