Man dead after 4-vehicle crash in Oakville
OAKVILLE, Ont. — A 40-year-old Oakville, Ont., man is dead following a crash on Monday afternoon involving four vehicles.
Halton Region police say just before 1 p.m., the man was driving north on Third Line when he lost control of his car, struck the centre median and veered across the northbound lanes and hit a minivan from behind.
The minivan was pushed into a third vehicle stopped at a red light.
The man’s car came to a stop by hitting a fourth vehicle which was also stopped at a red light.
The unidentified man died in hospital shortly after he arrived. Police say a pre-existing medical condition may have been a contributing factor in the crash and don’t believe alcohol or speed were involved.
