A Lakeshore, Ont. police officer has been charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm by the Ontario Provincial Police's Special Investigations Unit (SIU). 

In October, the officer was driving an OPP cruiser on County Road 42 in St. Joachim when it collided with another vehicle.

The driver of that vehicle, a 20-year-old man, sustained serious injuries.

An investigation by the SIU followed and, as a result, the officer faces one charge of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

The Lakeshore officer is set to appear before a Windsor court on January, 22, 2015.
