On Sunday April 10, 2016 at approximately 1625hrs, Halton Regional Police responded to a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian in Ward 1 of Oakville. The collision occurred on Bridge Road, west of Stanfield Drive, which is not a pedestrian crossing.
The involved vehicle was travelling eastbound on Bridge Road, when a male pedestrian stepped in front of the vehicle and was subsequently struck. He was treated at the scene by emergency services personnel and then was transferred to a trauma centre. The male pedestrian had head and upper body injuries.
Due to the nature of the injuries, the Collision Reconstruction Unit attended the scene and assumed responsibility for the investigation. The pedestrian, a forty seven year old Oakville resident, was later upgraded from critical to stable upon further examination at hospital.
Several independent witnesses along with the driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and provided the police with statements. The weather wasn’t a contributing factor in the collision. Bridge Road was closed for approximately three hours. The police have no charges pending.
