The specifics of the accident are still under review, but it has been confirmed that the crash involved a passenger car and a motorcycle. The victim was the sole rider of the motorcycle, which reportedly collided with the car around 8:15 p.m. the night of July 8. Emergency response crews found the woman in critical condition with no vital signs. She was rushed to a local hospital where she was later pronounced dead. 

Car accidents: 1 dead, 1 hurt in Ontario

A serious car crash in Mississauga has sent one man to the hospital and claimed the life of another, according to local and provincial police. Ontario authorities responsible for investigating car accidents responded to this crash in the early morning of June 28. So far, they have not filed charges against either of the drivers involved in the accident, but their investigation is still underway. 

The police report indicates that around 7:00 a.m., a vehicle carrying two men was crossing a busy intersection when the accident occurred. Reportedly, their vehicle collided with a pickup truck in the intersection. One of the two men, neither of whom has been identified by police, was found without vital signs at the accident site and was pronounced dead. The other man in the car was rushed to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

Car accident: 1 dead in Barrie

A horrific accident claimed the life of a woman in Barrie, and a 22-year-old man is up on charges after the crash, which happened back in Nov. 2015. Ontario authorities that handle the investigation of car accidents believe the man may have been impaired at the time of the accident. He was set to appear in court on June 19 for a trial that was expected to last seven days. 

The accident report says the man was driving his pickup truck with three passengers on Warminister Sideroad near Orillia when the accident occurred. The man reportedly lost control of his vehicle around 3 a.m. while trying to navigate a sharp turn, causing the truck to veer off the road and into a ditch. The truck continued for some 28 meters before smashing into a tree.

Car accidents: woman dead following crash in Ontario

One woman is dead and the other is in recovery after they were both struck by a car in North York. Car accidents involving pedestrians prove fatal tragically often, but Ontario authorities were on the scene to provide support to the victims. No charges have been filed against the driver at this time, but the investigation is currently ongoing. 

The accident took place around 9:51 a.m. the morning of May 31 when two 18-year-old women were attempting to cross Bayview Avenue in North York. A woman driving southbound reportedly struck both women. When authorities arrived, one of the two women was judged to be in life-threatening condition, while the other's injuries were less serious. Both were rushed to local hospitals. 

A tort claim may be possible after a pedestrian accident

Sometimes even doing what appears to be the right thing for the situation can still lead to undesirable results. For a case in point, look no further than the Ontario woman recently injured by a vehicle as she crossed the street in a crosswalk. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, it may be that a tort claim is an appropriate course of action for her to take.

The accident happened on June 3, at 11:30 in the morning. A 70-year-old woman was attempting to cross the street near the intersection of Kingston Road and Ridgemoor Avenue. Before completing the crossing, a taxi struck the woman, knocking her to the ground. Toronto police reports the woman was in a crosswalk at the time of the accident.

Woman wins tort claim after terrible crash on an icy bridge

A serious car accident on an icy bridge on a snowy day in the winter in Northern Ontario is not an unusual occurrence. It's the type of thing that happens with unfortunate regularity during the harsh winters, and the main contributing factor is usually either speed, or simply poor road conditions. Recently, however, a judge found the municipality was responsible for a terrible car accident, and the victim won her tort claim.

The accident took place in Nov. 2000 on a bridge just outside of Sudbury. A woman driving a car lost control on the icy bridge and crossed over the centre line, where an oncoming school bus struck her car. The accident caused devastating injuries to the 20-year-old victim.

Man hospitalized with injuries after bricks fall on him

No matter how much caution a person exercises, it is impossible to avoid a hazard one cannot see or anticipate. Citizens of Ontario can only trust that property owners take all reasonable precautions to keep their premises as safe as possible. A man suffered serious injuries outside a Toronto restaurant recently, in what could be a premises liability case.

On May 17, part of a building collapsed on Danforth Avenue near Main Street. The building houses a restaurant, and has a front patio where patrons can dine. Approximately 100 bricks fell from the building, sending pedestrians scurrying for cover.

Elevator-related injuries reaching new heights in Ontario

Nearly half of Canada's elevators are found in Ontario. Many people ride elevators every day when they shop, go to work or make their way to and from their home in an apartment building or condominium tower. Most users probably seldom give the mechanical conveyance a second thought. Recently released data, however, shows that elevators are causing more and more injuries every year.

The Technical Standards and Safety Authority, the organization that oversees elevator operation in Ontario, recently released incident data for 2011 through 2016. During that time, six people lost their lives in elevator accidents, and 1,225 people suffered injuries, including 69 victims who suffered permanent damage. The annual rate of incidents increased by an average of 14 percent annually during that time.
