Halton Police are seeking the public’s assistance in regards to a vehicle collision investigation.
Yesterday (Feb. 26, 2019) around 7:04 p.m., Halton Police were dispatched to a two-vehicle collision.
The collision, according to police, occurred on Kerr Street, just north of the QEW in Oakville.
Once police got to the scene it was discovered that the driver of a Black Lexus SUV had fled.
The vehicle in question was involved in the collision.
Police allege the Lexus SUV was travelling south on Kerr Street, when for reasons unknown, it lost control, struck a traffic sign, crossed over the centre concrete median, and struck a northbound Black Mazda SUV.
Police also allege the Lexus SUV continued on for about 50 meters, exiting the roadway and coming to rest at the tree line on the east side of Kerr Street adjacent to the embankment of 16 Mile Creek.
Luckily, the occupants of the Black Mazda, an 18-year-old female and a 13-year-old male, sustained no physical injuries from the collision.
The collision is still being investigated by the 2 District Response Team in an attempt to identify the driver of the Lexus SUV.
