On Monday, August 8, 2016, Halton Regional Police responded to a fatal motor vehicle collision on Third Line between North Service Road and Abbeywood Drive in Glen Abbey in the Town of Oakville.
At approximately 12:50pm, a 40-year-old Oakville man was driving northbound on Third Line in a grey Hyundai when he lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle struck the centre curbed-median then veered across the northbound lanes striking a minivan from behind. The minivan was accelerated forward into a third vehicle which was stopped for a red-light at Abbeywood Drive. The Hyundai continued north until it came to a stop hitting the fourth vehicle involved in the collision which was also stopped for a red light.
The 40-year-old Oakville native was transported to a local hospital where he died shortly after he arrived.
Police do not believe alcohol or speed were factors in the collision. A post-mortem examination will be conducted to determine the cause of death, as a pre-existing medical condition may have been a contributing factor in the collision.
The driver of the minivan, a 48-year-old Woodbridge woman was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. The other two drivers were not injured in the collision.
The northbound lanes on Third Line were closed for approximately 2 ½ hours for the scene investigation.
Any witnesses are asked to contact the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 905-825-4747 extension 5065. At the request of the family, the name of the deceased will not be released.
