The province's police watchdog is investigating after a youth was injured when allegedly speeding off in a vehicle from police and hitting a house in Opaskwayak Cree Nation.
The Independent Unit of Manitoba said on Wednesday officers from the Manitoba First Nations Police Service were patrolling on the reserve on July 18, when they saw a speeding vehicle.
The officers turned on their lights and siren and tried to pull the vehicle over, but they lost sight of it because it was going so fast.
When the officers caught up the vehicle had hit a house and the youth had blood on his face and said his arm hurt.
The youth was taken to The Pas Hospital where he was diagnosed with a broken arm and sent to Winnipeg for treatment.
