Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating the death of a 48-year-old man after a car crash in Clarington.

The Special Investigations Unit says there was a single-vehicle collision around 12 p.m. Saturday on Highway 115 north of Highway 407.

The SIU says there was an “interaction” between the man involved in the collision and a Durham regional police officer.

They say the officer fired his stun gun at the man.

The SIU says the man was taken to hospital in critical condition and pronounced dead around 2 a.m. Sunday.

The agency is asking for anyone with information about the incident to contact them.

More information to come as the investigation continues.
