Later that day, another Winnipeg police officer was arrested in connection with a separate fatal crash.

The Independent Investigation Unit has requested the Manitoba Police Commission appoint a civilian monitor into the investigation.

She said more details would be released on Wednesday. The woman alleged, on her way to hospital, that the officers had assaulted her.

No charges have been laid.

The Independent Investigation Unit asks witnesses or other individuals with information about the collision or video footage to contact them at 1-844-667-6060.
