Driver dragged officer along Toronto highway at high speed: police allege

Provincial police are appealing to a driver who allegedly dragged an officer along a Toronto highway at high speed to turn himself in.

OPP Const. Lauren Ball says the officer suffered non-life threatening injuries in the incident early Tuesday morning on Highway 400 and was released from hospital later that day.

Investigators say the officer, who was discovered injured on the side of the highway, had pulled over a car around 12:30 a.m.

It's alleged that as the officer was speaking with him, the driver fled at a high speed, dragging the officer a distance before he was able to break free.

OPP describe the suspect vehicle as a black Audi.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have information about the incident to contact OPP.
