BROCKVILLE, Ontario | A fifty-year-old american has lost the life, on Saturday morning, while he was likely to flee the police in Brockville, in eastern Ontario.

According to what was explained-the special investigations Unit (SIU) of Ontario, the 56 year old man residing in Houston, Texas, had been spotted in the morning around 10: 15 p.m. by patrol officers of the police Service Brockville, as he walked on a viaduct over highway 401.

“When the officers approached the man, he fled and jumped over the railing, falling on the ramp to the highway,” has detailed to the SIU, which manages in particular the surveys at events to police which result in death or serious injury to a citizen.
