Delivery driver charged in crash that killed toddler west of Toronto
Brampton man charged with dangerous driving causing death in Aug. 12 crash
Police have charged a delivery driver following a crash that killed a toddler in Mississauga last month.
Peel Regional Police say the 25-year-old Brampton man has been charged with dangerous driving causing death in the Aug. 12 crash.
Police say the 18-month-old boy and his mother were in a parking lot of an apartment building at about 5:30 p.m. that evening, when the accused struck the toddler. The collision happened near Confederation Parkway and Paisley Boulevard West, near Queensway West.
Peel police initially said the child was 19-months-old, but clarified the age in a news release Wednesday.
Const. Akhil Mooken, spokesperson for the Peel Regional Police, said the driver of the vehicle took the boy with his mother to a local hospital before paramedics arrived.
The toddler was pronounced dead a short time later.
The delivery driver is due in court in November.
