Three more charges have been laid against the male driver who is accused of causing a three-vehicle collision on Centennial Pkwy. in Hamilton early on a Monday morning in January.

Hamilton Police (HPS) says it has completed the investigation into the crash, which occurred shortly before 4:45 a.m. on Jan. 9. A southbound pickup truck crossed over into oncoming traffic, and collided with a northbound SUV. The initial collision forced the SUV into a collision with a third vehicle. The crash sent two people to the hospital. A third person declined to go. A 2-km span on Centennial was closed in both directions from King St. E. to Ridge Rd. while HPS used drones to investigate the crash.

Tuesday, HPS said the 35-year-old male driver of the pickup truck faces an additional criminal charge of operation while prohibited, as well as two provincial charges: driving while suspended, and careless driving. He was previously charged with being in possession of a stolen vehicle, and breaching the conditions of his probation.

The name of the suspect was not released on Tuesday.

Anyone who has information that could assist police with the investigation into this collision may contact the HPS Collision Reconstruction Unit (905-546-4753).
