Driver flees scene after serious Bradford crash

A driver fled the scene of a serious vehicle collision last night in Bradford.

A Chevrolet Equinox travelling north on Simcoe Road pulled to the east shoulder to let a passenger out.

A fast-travelling Chevrolet Impala drove into the back of the Equinox.

The Impala then skidded off the road, struck a house on the east side and caught fire.

The driver and four passengers got out of the Impala and the driver fled on foot.

Emergency services were called to the scene at about 11:15 p.m.

The driver of the Equinox was taken to hospital with serious injuries to her head, leg and hips. She is expected to survive.

Two of the Impala’s passengers were also taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police closed Simcoe Road for most of the night to investigate the collision.

Police identified the driver who fled the scene and urge him to speak to a lawyer and turn himself in.

Anyone with information on the collision is asked to call Const. Maxwell Brown at 905-775-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
