The Special Investigations Unit says an 82 year-old woman who was walking was injured after being hit by an OPP cruiser in Corunna.

Around noon Nov. 16, an OPP officer was traveling west on St. Clair Blvd in Corunna. The car hit the woman while turning south onto the St. Clair Parkway. Officials say the woman was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The SIU, which is an independent body which investigates when there is a death, serious injury, sexual assault or the discharge of a firearm with police, has been talking with four members of the OPP after the incident.

Two investigators and one forensic investigator are looking into the accident to determine if the police committed any offences.
