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. 

The driver of the pickup truck was also taken to a hospital, though his injuries were described as serious rather than life-threatening. Police closed the intersection for several hours to allow the major collision bureau to investigate the accident. So far, they have not determined the cause of the crash or which driver might have been responsible. 

When handling fatal car accidents, Ontario authorities typically investigate thoroughly to determine whether criminal charges should be filed against one or both drivers. It is unclear in this case if the driver of the car was killed in the accident, but it is possible that all three parties or their families could have legal recourse beyond criminal charges. Depending on the outcome of the police investigation, the driver found materially responsible for the crash could face personal injury and/or wrongful death lawsuits filed in civil court.
