Car accidents: man hurt in Mississauga

One man is seriously injured following a collision between his vehicle and a dump truck in Mississauga, according to local sources. Car accidents of this type are typically investigated by local and/or Ontario authorities to determine material cause. For the moment, the investigation into this crash is still underway, and no charges have been filed. 

The specifics of the accident are not yet available, but it has been confirmed by Peel Region authorities that two vehicles were involved in the crash, which happened on Nov. 8 around 12:45 p.m. The force of the impact between the two vehicles was sufficient to cause enough damage to the car that paramedics had to work with other emergency workers to extricate the man from the vehicle. He was reportedly trapped for several minutes. 

The man was rushed to a trauma centre in Toronto with injuries described as serious. The dump truck driver was treated on the scene for injuries described as minor. Police have not yet determined which of the two drivers was responsible for the crash, but they have asked anyone who witnessed the accident to reach out with any available information. 

When car accidents do not have a clear-cut cause, the investigation can sometimes take a lot of time. However, Ontario authorities are dedicated to getting to the bottom of this crash and determining which driver contributed materially to the accident. If it is determined the dump truck driver is responsible, the injured man could file a personal injury suit using evidence pointing to the other driver's culpability.
