I’ve commented before on staged collisions before. They’re done for a noble cause, of course. They are usually done in the dead of night, when there are virtually no witnesses. They are done to illustrate real problems, I suppose, to scare into behaving? Is a noble lie something we should accept?
Most RIDE stops are done near bars, in or around closing time. The bars close in Ontario at 2am.
To have a RIDE stop off a major highway is quite unusual. The collision here is less than a few kilometers away from the RIDE stop. If the perp was really going at a high rate of speed, there is little chance the pursuit would have even started by the time he’s alleged to have crashed, let alone have had the chase called off. The story here is really contradicting itself, to further illustrate it’s fake.
A man is dead after a violent single-car crash and Dundas and Hurontario Sts. Saturday morning.
The OPP called off the pursuit and a short time later received a call about a crash at the intersection about two kilometres north of the highway.
