Two Males Sought By Police after Collision on James Street South

Hamilton Police need your help in identifying two males who were involved in a motor vehicle collision on James Street South in early November. If you have any information about the incident or can identify the males, please contact police.

On Thursday, November 5, 2020, shortly after 6:00 p.m., a 34-year-old Hamilton man was involved in a minor motor vehicle collision with a black Mercedes Benz sedan. The collision took place in the area of James Street South and Charlton Avenue. Both vehicles pulled off the roadway to exchange information. The driver and passenger of the Mercedes exited the vehicle and a conversation ensued between them and the victim.
