Bike vs. car accidents: Crash claims lives of Ontario cyclists

The Ontario Provincial Police is appealing to the public for any information regarding a recent crash in Middlesex-London involving a vehicle and a cyclist, which claimed the cyclist's life. Car accidents involving bicycles and/or pedestrians still continue to be an issue on Ontario roads. An OPP spokesperson said the female cyclist was riding in a southern direction when hit by a southbound vehicle.

No charges have been laid in the incident. Police are working to notify the victim's next of kin. They continue to investigate. Victims in Ontario car accidents caused by another person's negligence may be entitled to financial relief. Although negligence is sometimes difficult to prove, a lawyer experienced in personal injury law will be able to assist victims and guide them through the process.

Wrongful death possible in fatal accident in Toronto

One man is dead and another individual was badly hurt after an accident in Cabbagetown in Toronto on the afternoon of July 31, according to police. Toronto police responded to the fatal crash just after 7:00 a.m. and are still in the process of determining what caused the accident that involved two pedestrians. Under Ontario law, the driver may face criminal charges and/or wrongful death/personal injury suits in civil court, should the victims or their families choose to file them.

The accident report says a southbound passenger vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when the vehicle left the road and climbed onto the sidewalk. The vehicle struck two male pedestrians on the sidewalk, killing one man immediately. The second man was treated by Toronto EMS but was rushed to a local hospital with injuries described as serious but not life-threatening.

According to the accident report, which is still being compiled by authorities, the accident took place around 9:40 p.m. the night of July 22.

Car accidents: 2 injured in Port Perry crash

Two people have been injured and police are seeking witnesses after a wreck in Port Perry involving a farm tractor.

So far, they have not managed to track down this driver. 

According to the accident report so far, a farm tractor in Port Perry was headed westbound when it entered an intersection and drove directly on top of a southbound passenger vehicle. Police were alerted to this accident around 2:00 p.m. the afternoon of July 13. Two women who were in the car at the time of the collision were badly hurt. They were rushed to a local hospital with injuries described as being non life-threatening.

Tragedy struck East Gwillimbury the afternoon of July 5 when a serious car crash claimed the life of a child and injured two more.

However, their investigation is still ongoing as of this report. 

According to the accident report, the crash took place at an intersection around 3:30 p.m. A minivan carrying seven occupants reportedly collided with a pickup truck that was hauling a trailer. The force of the impact caused significant damage to both vehicles. Police say they are unsure at this time which driver was materially responsible for the crash. 

Car accidents: 2 teens injured

A serious car crash in Centennial Park has left two teenagers badly hurt, according to local sources. As with many car accidents, this crash occurred on a holiday -- the night of July 1. Ontario police say they are still investigating the cause of the crash, and have not yet made any arrests or formally filed charges. 

The accident report is incomplete as of this writing, but it has been confirmed that the accident occurred in Etobicoke near The West Mall. Police were notified of an accident involving pedestrians around 10:30 p.m. and responded accordingly. They said they found two seriously injured teenagers, whose identities and genders have not been released to the public. They were rushed to a local hospital. 

Car accidents: 13-year-old boy dead in Mississauga

A tragic two-car crash in Mississauga has claimed three lives, including two boys. Ontario police typically investigate car accidents of this type, which is the process that is currently underway in this instance. As the driver believed responsible for the crash was also killed, no criminal charges have been filed. 

According to the accident report, a 40-year-old man was headed southbound on Winston Churchill Boulevard around 11 p.m. the night of July 25 when the accident occurred. For reasons that have not yet been made clear, the man lost control of his vehicle, which entered the northbound lane and struck a vehicle headed in that direction. The man was pronounced dead at the scene by arriving medical personnel. 

Wrongful death case possible in death of 4 year old

A tragic crash the night of June 11 claimed the life of a 4-year-old boy in Innisfil, according to local sources. South Simcoe Police have reported the accident involved two cars and are still investigating the particulars of the crash. While no charges have yet been filed, the family of the deceased child may choose to file a wrongful death suit in an Ontario civil court.

The accident report provided by local police say two vehicles crashed on 20 Sideroad. It appears the vehicle heading southbound may have run a stop sign, causing the collision in an intersection, striking an eastbound car. Four people were seriously injured, including the boy, and all four were rushed to local hospitals for treatment.

Car accidents: Ontario woman dead following North York crash

The other woman struck in the crash is currently in recovery. 

The accident report is still incomplete, but it has been confirmed the two women, both 18, were attempting to cross Bayview Avenue around 9:51 a.m. on May 31. Both were struck by a southbound vehicle being driven by a 42-year-old woman, who apparently remained at the scene of the accident and cooperated with police. She did not appear to be injured in the crash. 

Car accidents: Woman killed in Brampton

The Major Collision Bureau is in the process of investigating a fatal crash in Brampton. Car accidents resulting in fatalities require considerable police presence and involvement, which is why Ontario authorities have become involved. For the moment, however, they have not filed charges against either driver involved in the accident. 

According to the report, the accident happened sometime after 7 p.m. on May 31. Two vehicles collided at the intersection of Queen Street East and Goreway Drive.
