An investigation is underway after an officer found two injured people in a field.

Around midnight on Friday, a Morden Police Service officer tried to conduct a traffic stop. Instead of complying, the vehicle fled. The officer, now following the fleeing vehicle, attempted to catch up but instead had to stop pursuing them for safety reasons.

Later, the officer found the vehicle on its side in a field.

Both the driver and the passenger were found outside of the crashed vehicle in need of medical attention. Both were sent to the hospital but the passenger succumbed to his injuries.

The Independent Investigation Unit (IIU) was notified on Saturday of the incident. They are now investigating. 

IIU is asking those who may have information or video footage to call them at 1-844-667-6060.
