The evidence obtained from radio transmissions and other data demonstrates the officers involved had moved on to other calls and were not in pursuit. When the officer located the male’s vehicle it was coincidental. There is no evidence to indicate the actions of the police were responsible for the injuries suffered by the male.

As a result, the investigation has been concluded.
