OPP officer escapes serious injury during traffic stop in Mississaugaā€¯

An OPP officer callously run down by a hit-and-run driver, then dragged behind the fleeing vehicle on Monday morning, miraculously escaped with just minor injuries.

Peel Regional police say the incident happened just before 9 a.m.at Highway 403 and Hurontario St., where an OPP officer and a auto he had stopped were involved.

Sometime during the stop the vehicle sped off, dragging the officer approximately 200 metres. Chatelain was taken to Sunnybrook HSC in serious but not life-threatening condition, according to Peel police. "He is doing well", Peel paramedics tweeted.

Later in a social media post, OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the injuries are minor and the officer, identified as Cons. Patrick Chatelain, had returned home where he is expected to make a full recovery.

Police have made an arrest following a crash where an OPP officer was struck by a vehicle this morning. It fled northbound on Hurontario following the incident.

The auto of the suspect, a Chrysler 300 C, dark grey and registered FLK 8756, was found in the early afternoon, said Peel regional Police.

An earlier report suggested that the suspects were armed, but that was not confirmed by police. The driver was said to be a black man who was accompanied in the passenger seat by a white woman.

The public is warned not to approach the vehicle but to call 911 or Crime Stoppers.

Some Highway 403 on- and off-ramps in the areas are closed for the police investigation.
