On Wednesday May 8, 2019 just before 8:00 PM, Halton Regional Police Services were dispatched to Valleyridge Drive south of Dundas Street West in the Oakville neighbourhood of Palermo, for a motor vehicle collision. The collision involved serious injuries.

St. Luke’s Church and Community Centre are located at the corner of Valleyridge Drive and Dundas Street West.

Emergency services personnel attended the scene. They found two women who were suffering with head injuries. The women required immediate care.

An 84 year-old female Burlington resident was taken to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital in serious condition. The 92 year-old female Oakville resident was taken to Hamilton General Hospital’s trauma centre in life threatening condition.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit attended the scene and assumed responsibility for the investigation.  It would seem that the vehicle involved in the collision became stuck on the curb.  As the driver attempted to reverse, she fell out of the open driver’s door and a pedestrian was struck as the vehicle was moving.

Any witnesses to the collision in Palermo, who haven’t spoken to police, are urged to contact the Collision Reconstruction Unit at (905) 825-4747 extension 5065.
