BURLINGTON, ON  October 26, 2012  A 52 year old Hamilton woman was killed in a car collision  on South Service Road at Harvester Road at around 5:15 Thursday evening.

Earlier in the day the United Way had held a rousingly successful fund raising event when three Food Trucks were feeding line-ups that got to more than 200 people.

The very serious two car collision involved a black Buick Rendezvous that was westbound on Harvester Road when it collided with a silver Pontiac Grand Am that was attempting to turn from the eastbound lanes of Harvester onto northbound South Service Road.  The Buick broadsided the Pontiac.

A passenger in the Pontiac, a 52 year old Hamilton woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.  The driver of the Pontiac, and a  41 year old female and another passenger; a 23 year old male, both of Hamilton, were taken to Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Two passengers in the Buick, a 22 year old male and a 20 year old male (both from Burlington) were taken to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  The driver of the Buick, a 21 year old Burlington male, was not injured and was arrested at the scene of the accident

The decedent had to be extricated from the wreckage by firefighters.

Several witnesses have come forward and provided statements to police.

Due to the fatality, members of the Collision Reconstruction Unit (C.R.U.) attended the scene and took carriage of the investigation.  Reconstructionists spent over six hours at the location collecting evidence and measuring the scene.

Police will not be releasing the names of the decedent or the injured persons.

Charged with Impaired Operation Causing Death, Dangerous Operation Causing Death and two counts of Failing to Comply with Probation is Kyrie McKay, 21 of Burlington.

McKay will be held for a Bail Hearing scheduled for Friday October 26th at the Milton Courthouse.
