Ontario's Special Investigations unit says an Essex OPP officer can't be blamed for the death of a man last month.

On April 18 an officer tried to stop a vehicle. The car didn't stop and a short chase began.

It ended with the car crashing and rolling over several times.

Officers on scene used CPR on the man, but he was pronounced dead upon arrival at Windsor Regional Hospital.

The SIU ruled that the man was "the author of his own misfortune" by choosing to flee from police.
