Peel Regional Police have arrested and charged a 67-year-old Mississauga man in relation to a hit and run collision that happened earlier this month.

According to a press release issued by police on Friday (June 11), members of the Major Collision Bureau arrested and charged Gurbant Lal, a 67-year-old man from Mississauga, with Fail to Stop After Accident Resulting in Bodily Harm.

Lal was arrested on Monday (June 7), following an investigation into the collision that sent a 61-year-old Mississauga man to hospital on Sunday (June 6).

Police said at approximately 10 p.m. on Sunday, they were called to the area of Airport Road at Morning Star Drive after a man crossing within a crosswalk was struck by a car exiting a private driveway and attempting to travel northbound onto Airport Road.

“First responders attended the scene and located the victim suffering from injuries,” Friday’s press release said.

“He was taken to a trauma centre for treatment and his injuries were later considered to be non-life-threatening in nature.”

Lal is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton in August 2021.

Anyone who may have witnessed this collision or has video surveillance, or dashcam footage of the incident, is asked to contact the Major Collision Bureau at 905-453-2121, extension 3710. Information may also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by visiting peelcrimestoppers.ca.
