Ontario's Special Investigations Unit has ruled that no charges against any officer are warranted concerning the Police Chase of 20 year-old Zachary Wittke on September 25th of 2017.
On that date officers had been in pursuit of a pickup truck driven by the Eganville man.
Wittke's pickup collided with a vehicle being operated by 65 year-old Sheila Welsh of Arnprior on Daniel Street in the community.
Ms Welsh was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against any OPP officer in relation to the police pursuit.
