On Sunday December 29, 2013 at approximately 11:32 p.m., officers from the North Division were called to the scene of a motor vehicle collision involving a silver Volkswagen and a white Mitsubishi SUV. Witnesses reported seeing the silver Volkswagen travelling northbound on Toronto Street. The Volkswagen appeared to be attempting to pass another northbound vehicle when it lost control and entered into the southbound lanes and was struck on the passenger side by the Mitsubishi SUV.
The driver of the Volkswagen had no vital signs at the scene and was transported to Lakeridge Health-Uxbridge, where he was pronounced. The driver and passenger of the SUV were not injured in the collision. The name of the deceased is not being released at this time.
Members of the DRPS Traffic Services Branch, Collision Investigation Unit, attended the scene to conduct an investigation. The roadway was closed for several hours while evidence was collected. Investigators have determined that alcohol and drugs were a factor in this collision.
