Police Continue to Investigate Collision Involving Truck and Pedestrian

A 34–year-old Hamilton man was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after being involved in a collision with a truck.

On Monday, November 16, 2020, shortly after 9:30 a.m., a dump truck pulling a trailer was travelling westbound on Stone Church Road East approaching Ardleigh Street. At that time a male pedestrian stepped into the lane in front of the truck’s path. The driver immediately attempted to stop his vehicle but ultimately made contact with the pedestrian. The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with police who had immediately responded.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit was activated and the intersection was closed for several hours as witnesses were interviewed and the scene processed. The pedestrian was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Through continued investigation, driver impairment and error along with speed have been ruled out as contributing factors to the collision.

At this time, the pedestrian continues to receive medical treatment in hospital as his condition remains stable but critical.
