Serious Collision in Burlington

On Thursday September 12, 2019 at approximately 1630hrs, Halton Regional Police were dispatched to a personal injury motor vehicle collision in the City of Burlington.  Initial information from the scene was that a male cyclist had been struck by a vehicle and was suffering with serious injuries. 

Emergency services personnel arrived on scene and treated the 35 year old Burlington resident for serious injuries.  He was subsequently transported to a local trauma centre, where he remains in serious condition. 

The Collision Reconstruction Unit attended the scene and assumed responsibility for the investigation.  It was determined that a Dodge Ram pick-up truck pulling an enclosed trailer exited the Queen Elizabeth Way off-ramp and was attempting an eastbound turn onto Fairview Street.  The cyclist was westbound on the sidewalk and collided with the trailer in the intersection.

The driver of the Dodge, a 60 year old male from the Bancroft area remained on scene.  

Police urge any witnesses, or anyone who may have dash camera footage, to contact investigators at (905) 825-4747 extension 5065.
