Driver Succumbs to His Injuries After Grimsby Roll-Over

Monday evening at approximately 5:30 p.m., the Niagara Regional Police Service, the Grimsby Fire Service and the Niagara Emergency Medical Service (EMS), responded to reports of a two-vehicle collision that occurred on Ontario Street near the QEW overpass in the Town of Grimsby, Ontario.

Investigators have determined that a 2001 Pontiac Montana van was travelling east along the QEW access road on the south side of the QEW. The Pontiac was occupied by the 74 year-old driver and his 70 year-old passenger, both from Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario.

The Pontiac continued east and approached the intersection at Ontario Street. The 74 year-old driver failed to yield the right-of-way and entered into the through lane on Ontario Street.

At the same time, a 2005 Volkswagen Jetta, driven by a lone 35 year-old female from Grimsby, Ontario, was travelling south on Ontario Street.

The Volkswagen struck the Pontiac on the driver’s door, causing the Pontiac to roll onto its passenger side in the middle of the intersection and come to final rest.

The two occupants in the Pontiac van were trapped following the collision and required extrication by the Fire Department.

All involved parties were transported to the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. An Air Ambulance was dispatched to transport the seriously injured 74 year-old driver to a trauma centre.

Despite the efforts by medical personnel, the 74 year-old driver succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

The passenger in the Pontiac and the driver of the Volkswagen received minor injuries and were treated in Hospital.

The name of the deceased is not being released at this time.

This collision remains under investigation by Detectives of the Niagara Regional Police – Collision Reconstruction Unit.

Any witnesses to the collision are asked to contact detectives at (905) 688-4111, extension 5500.
