O.P.P. officer charged in summer crash in Johnstown

JOHNSTOWN – After a six month investigation, the province’s Special Investigations Unit has charged an O.P.P. officer involved in a crash with another vehicle this summer.

O.P.P. Const. Timothy Jackson is facing a single count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

The crash happened at the intersection of Mary Street and County Road 2 in the village of Johnstown in Edwardsburgh-Cardinal Township on Friday, June 10, 2016.

According to the SIU, the cruiser was heading east on County Road 2, responding to a call, when it crashed into the back of another vehicle attempting to make a left-hand turn to Mary Street, sending the vehicle into the ditch on its roof.

The 63-year-old driver was seriously injured.

Jackson will appear in a Brockville court on Friday, Jan. 6, 2017.

The officer had already been scheduled to transfer to another detachment prior to the crash and has since left the Grenville County detachment.
