Police don’t identify an accident victim and don’t want to say which hospital he is in either. Odd isn’t it?

By Staff.

BURLINGTON, ON.  August 8, 2013. Halton’s police service are investigating a hit and run collision that left a motorcyclist seriously injured by a vehicle that fled the scene.   This vehicle was being followed by the Ontario Provincial Police prior to the collision.

 The incident occurred on Thursday, August 1, 2013 at approximately 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of Plains Road and Hillsdale Avenue in Burlington.  After the driver of the suspect vehicle struck the motorcyclist, he fled the scene; last seen driving east on Plains Road.

 A 56-year-old Dundas, Ont. man was seriously injured in this collision and is still in an undisclosed area hospital.

 Vehicle Information: A vehicle of interest has been identified as a 2001-2003 Nissan Sentra, grey in colour. The suspect vehicle will be missing the rear bumper and will have damage to the driver’s side tail light assembly.

 Suspect Information:  The driver is described as male, white, believed to be in his 30s – 40s with shoulder-length brown hair.

The Special Investigations Unit has been brought in because the OPP were following the suspect, and someone sustained an injury.

The interesting note here is the mention of the driver of the motorcycle being at an “undisclosed area hospital” – why not say where the victim is?  More to this story than meets the eye.

Anyone with information pertaining to this collision or the vehicle of interest is asked to contact the Halton Regional Police Service Collision Reconstruction Unit at 905-825-4747 ext. 5065.

 Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by texting ‘Tip201’ with a message to 274637 (CRIMES).
