RCMP Officer Charged in Relation to Fall Collision

Share:

Police

An internal investigation has concluded that an on-duty RCMP officer may have committed an offence related to a collision at a local intersection.

Last year, on September 10 at 6:36 p.m., the officer in question, Constable Jean Christophe Martin, was involved in an accident at the corner of Highways 59 and 311. Two individuals sustained serious injuries in the incident.

The civilian director of the Independent Investigation Unit (IIU), which is tasked with investigating potentially criminal matters related to the police in Manitoba, has determined that there are reasonable grounds to believe an offence occurred under the Criminal Code.

Martin has been issued a summons to appear at the provincial court in St. Pierre-Jolys on March 22 to face two counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

The investigation had begun on September 13, and now that the matter is before the courts the IIU has advised that they will not comment further.
