At approximately 1:44pm on the 14th of June 2019 the Halton Regional Police Service received information of a motor vehicle collision that occurred on Mount Forest Drive just east of Brant Street in the City of Burlington. The initial investigation has revealed that a Honda Civic was eastbound on Mount Forest Drive from Brant Street when it mounted and crossed the center median and entered westbound lanes. It then mounted the north curb and entered the parking lot of a plaza on the north side of Mount Forest Drive where it struck two parked vehicles. The 65 year old male driver from Burlington was taken to Joseph Brant Hospital by Halton Region Paramedic Services where he was pronounced dead.
Due to the severity of the outcome, the Collision Reconstruction Unit has taken carriage of the investigation. The road was closed for approximately four hours for the at-scene investigation.
