Halton Regional Police were called to the scene of a fatal vehicular accident on Speers Road.
On September 14, 2016, at 2:57 pm, a 2013 Mack truck was travelling eastbound on Speers Road approaching Fourth Line in the Town of Oakville when it struck and killed a pedestrian.
A seventy year old Oakville woman stepped off the north curb and began crossing Speers Road on foot. After crossing the centre line, she entered the path of the Mack truck and was struck in the curb lane. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are not releasing the name of the decedent at this time, pending notification of her next of kin.
The driver of the truck was a twenty-six year old male from Mississauga. The driver of the truck did not sustain any injuries.
Speers Road was closed in both directions between Third and Fourth Line for several hours, which caused major delays during the evening rush hour.
Any witnesses who have not yet spoken with police are asked to contact the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 905-825-4747 ext. 5065.
