Toronto driver dies in Toyota Camry at 6th Line & North Service Road

Witnesses asked to contact the police

Halton Regional Police are investigating a single motor vehicle collision that has claimed the life of a Toronto man.

Around 7:30 p.m. on Friday night a 1998 Toyota Camry was westbound on the North Service Road approaching Sixth Line. The vehicle failed to negotiate a 90 degree curve in the road and drove down a pedestrian walkway leading to the Sixteen Mile Creek ravine. The Camry struck a cement light post on the walkway and came to a rest.

Emergency Services were called to the scene and shortly thereafter the lone driver was pronounced dead. No other persons or vehicles were involved.

Police will not be releasing the name of the driver, a 67yr old Toronto resident.

Members of the Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) have taken carriage of the investigation. North Service Road between Sixth Line and Truman Avenue, as well as a busy pedestrian walkway which runs under the QEW, remained closed for the at-scene portion of the investigation as of 11:30 p.m. Speed and alcohol have not been ruled out.

Any witnesses who may have observed the crash or the tan 4 door Camry in the area prior to 7:30 are asked to contact the CRU at 905.825.4747 ext.5065.

This is the first traffic fatality to be investigated by Halton Regional Police this year.

Contact: D/Constable Kevin RYE, CRU, ext.5056
