Fatal Collision in Oakville

On Thursday December 3, 2020 at 1414hrs, Halton Regional Police attended a fatal motor vehicle collision in the area of Lakeshore Road East

and Burgundy Drive, in the Town of Oakville. Initial reports from the scene were that a pedestrian had been struck and was badly injured. As emergency services personnel arrived at the scene, a 51 year old female was pronounced deceased, as well as her dog.


Due to the nature of the incident, the Collision Reconstruction Unit was notified, attended the scene and assumed responsibility for the

investigation. It was determined that the involved vehicle was originally eastbound on Lakeshore Road East, before it left the roadway to the south side. The vehicle continued to travel eastbound, off the roadway, where it struck the female pedestrian and her dog, who were walking

along a path. The vehicle then struck a decorative stone post, which redirected it back onto the roadway, where it came to rest.


The driver, a 58 year old (male) Oakville resident was assessed at the scene by paramedics. He was then investigated by responding officers

and was subsequently arrested for Impaired Operation Cause Death and Dangerous Driving Cause Death.


Any witnesses who have not spoken to police, or any members of the public who may have dash camera/security camera footage from the area,

are urged to contact investigators at (905) 825-4747 extension 5065.
