Police Seek Witnesses to Collision Involving a Pedestrian
Hamilton Police are investigating a single-vehicle collision involving a pedestrian.
On Sunday, October 18, 2020, shortly after 9:30 p.m., an 86-year-old male was attempting to cross northbound on Queenston Road, just west of Parkdale Avenue. The male was struck by a westbound motor vehicle approximately 250 meters west of the above-mentioned intersection. The driver immediately pulled over and contacted police. The pedestrian was transported to the hospital for further medical treatment. His injuries are considered serious but non-life-threatening.
As a result of the level injuries incurred by the pedestrian, the Collision Reconstruction Unit has taken over the investigation. Detectives are asking anyone who was in the area at the time of the collision or anyone who has dash-cam footage and has yet to speak with police, to come forward.
Speed and driver impairment have been ruled out as contributing factors to the collision.
Out of respect for the family, police are not releasing the identity of the pedestrian at this time.
If you have any information that you believe could assist police with the investigation, you are asked to contact the Collision Reconstruction Unit by calling 905-546-4753 or 905-546-4755.
