Car accidents: 2 drivers injured in Brampton crash

A serious accident in Brampton sent two drivers to local hospitals, according to reports. Ontario rescue services responsible for car accidents responded to the crash just after midnight on the night of Oct. 27. So far, neither driver is facing charges, but police are still investigating the cause of the crash. 

The reports regarding this accident are limited at this time, but it has been confirmed that two vehicles collided on Queen Street East in Brampton around 12:25 a.m. One of the drivers, a 17-year-old, was rushed to a trauma center in nearby Toronto for injuries that have been described as serious but non-life threatening. The other driver also suffered injuries not thought to be life-threatening and was taken to a trauma center in Brampton. 

Police do not yet know what caused the car accident, or which driver was responsible for the crash. However, as is common in car accidents of this type, they closed the roads for several hours while investigating the accident. They have not publicly ruled out negligence, recklessness or intoxication as possible causes for the accident. Roads were re-opened in time for morning rush hour traffic. 

Car accidents without an immediately obvious cause require additional investigation by Ontario authorities. It is hoped in this situation that material contribution to the accident will be determined, so that the driver or drivers responsible can be handled as the law deems fit. However, depending on which driver is found responsible, the other driver is entitled under provincial law to file a personal injury suit even if no criminal charges are filed.
