The province's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 43-year-old man who fled from Guelph police on Saturday.

According to the SIU, at around 9:30 a.m. officers were called to check on the well-being of a man. The individual in question was also found to be wanted on a police warrant.

Guelph police located the man in a pickup truck in the area of Victoria Street and York Road.

The man reportedly fled in his truck and was pursued to the area of Victoria Road South and Clair Road East, where the truck collided with two civilian vehicles and rolled over several times.

The man was taken to hospital and was pronounced dead.

Three investigators, two forensic investigators, and one collision reconstructionist have been assigned to this case.

Anyone who may have information about this investigation, including video or photos, is asked to contact the SIU's lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529.
