Hamilton Police confirmed Friday (July 9) that a 15-year-old girl who was struck by a car while skateboarding on an Ancaster street in April has died as a result of her injuries.

Members of the HPS collision reconstruction unit have concluded an investigation into the collision and no charges have been laid.

The incident occurred on the evening of April 25, shortly after 9 p.m when police were called to Old Mohawk Road after receiving a report of the collision.

Upon arriving on the scene, emergency crews found the 15-year-old girl had sustained life-threatening injuries after being struck by a 2008 Honda sedan.

The driver of the Honda, a 21-year-old Hamilton man, remained on the scene and reportedly tended to the girl while awaiting help.

The girl was subsequently transported to hospital.

Police said Friday they were “saddened” to announce that she has died.

“Our thoughts are with her family at this time,” police said in a tweet.

Hamilton Police said this is the city’s sixth traffic fatality this year.
