Police seek witnesses to Oct. 9 car crash on Mountain
Possible street race led to 'serious' collision with multiple injuries
Hamilton police are looking for witnesses of a suspected case of street racing that resulted in a serious collision.
On Oct. 9 around 2:45 p.m., police say, two cars were speeding eastbound on Fennell Avenue near Garth Street when one of the vehicles lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic. That car, a Honda Del Sol, collided with an Acura MDX.
Police spokesperson Claus Wagner described the crash as “serious” and said it resulted in several non-life-threatening injuries.
According to witnesses, the vehicle that appeared to have been racing the Honda had four male occupants in their late teens. The group reportedly laughed at the sight of the crash and then drove away, heading westbound on Fennell Avenue, police say.
Police are looking to get in contact with anyone who could help identify the car and its occupants. Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call investigators at 905-546-3947 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
So far, no charges have been laid in the case, Wagner said.
