An OPP officer faces dangerous driving charges after a cruiser chasing suspects in a Sarnia bank heist collided with a cab in London last summer, badly injuring a mother and daughter, Ontario’s police watchdog says.
Middlesex OPP Const. Timothy Groves is charged with two counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and one count of dangerous driving, the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) announced Thursday.
Const. Groves, who is set to appear in a London court June 2, is on paid leave from the OPP, spokesperson Derek Rogers said, declining to elaborate
Provincial police had pursued a vehicle carrying two suspects into London July 28, 2019, when an OPP cruiser collided with a U-Need-A-Cab taxi leaving the No Frills grocery store at 635 Southdale Rd. about 5 p.m., the SIU said. Taxi passengers Porsche Clark, 27, and her daughter, Skyla, 9, were severely injured.
