Halton Regional Police are looking to identify the driver of a car involved in a collision with a motorized scooter last month in Oakville that sent a man to hospital with serious injuries.
According to a press release issued Thursday (Aug. 5), police said the incident in question took place on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, just before 3 p.m. in the area of Bronte Road and Lakeshore Road West in Oakville.
A man driving a motorized scooter in a pedestrian crossing was struck by a car that was turning onto Lakeshore. The man was knocked from his scooter and into the intersection, according to police.
