On April 5, 2019 at approximately 6:30am, members of the Brantford Police Service were dispatched to attend a serious motor vehicle collision on Darling Street at Market Street. A vehicle had left the roadway and had struck a building. Officers located a lone female occupant in the vehicle that had sustained serious injuries. Members of Brantford Fire and Brant/Brantford paramedics also attended to assist with the injured party.
Brantford Police were also notified of another motor vehicle collision that occurred on Dalhousie Street near Rawdon Street. A vehicle had collided with a city bus and left the area.
Preliminary investigation suggests that the two collisions are connected and involve the same motor vehicle. A 39 year old Brantford woman was transported by emergency medical services to a hospital in Hamilton with serious injuries. No other injuries have been reported in either accident.
The area of Dalhousie Street between Stanley Street and Drummond Street and Darling Street between George Street and Charlotte Street were closed for several hours during the investigation as members from the Collision Reconstruction Unit processed the collision scenes. All roadways are now open.
Some witnesses have come forward at the scene, however, the Brantford Police Traffic Unit would like to speak with anyone that has further information regarding this incident. Witnesses are encouraged to contact Constable Jeremy Morton at 519-756-011
