Hamilton Police are investigating after a 57-year-old man was killed in a single-car collision in Flamborough over the weekend.
On Saturday (July 10) emergency services were called to Regional Road 97, near Highway 6 in Flamborough, shortly before 10:30 p.m. to reports of a collision.
Police said in a press release that the man, from Elmsdale, ON, was driving a 2005 Dodge Caravan eastbound on RR 97 when his car left the road, rolled, and caught fire as it came to a rest.
“Witnesses called 9-1-1 and Hamilton Police and emergency service partners responded,” the release said. “The driver was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
Both directions of Regional Road 97 were closed as the scene was processed; they have since re-opened.
Police said the crash is under investigation and driver impairment has not been ruled out while investigators said that speed appears to be a contributing factor. A post-mortem is scheduled for Monday in Toronto, the release said.
This is the city’s seventh traffic fatality of 2021.
Anyone with information about the collision is asked to contact Detectives at the CRU by calling 905-546-4753.
