A police officer sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries Saturday morning in a crash on the QEW. 

An investigation into the collision has the QEW eastbound lanes closed between Cawthra and Hurontario for "a few hours," said Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Kerry Schmidt.

Police were pursuing a vehicle on the QEW that failed to stop and was then involved in a collision. The driver ran away on foot and police are looking for the driver.

Peel paramedics were called to the scene around 9 a.m. Saturday.  They transported the officer to hospital and examined another person who was not transported.
