Nova Scotia's police watchdog is investigating after a 23-year-old man who was pursued by police after an alleged traffic violation was injured in a motorcycle crash in Cape Breton.
The Serious Incident Response Team says it was called in after a Cape Breton Regional Police officer driving an RCMP vehicle turned on his siren in an attempt to stop a motorcycle Sunday around 4 p.m.
Shortly later, the motorcycle collided with a car in Glace Bay on Reserve Street near MacAdam Street.
The driver of the motorcycle was flown to the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax suffering from serious injuries.
The province's Police Act requires a public report summarizing the result of the investigation within three months after it is complete.
