A young woman from Flamborough is Hamilton’s fifth driving fatality of 2020, Hamilton Police say.
On Saturday (April 25), shortly after 5:30 p.m., a single-vehicle collision occurred on a private property on Harvest Road just east of Ofield Road South, Hamilton Police say in a press release issued Monday (April 27).
A 24-year-old Flamborough woman was driving an ATV with her 21-year-old sister as her passenger.
Police say the vehicle lost control and fell down a ridge causing both women to fall approximately 10 metres.
Hamilton Police, Paramedic Services and Fire responded to the collision and transported the 24-year-old driver to the hospital with serious injuries.
The 21-year-old passenger, police say, was found to be non-responsive and unfortunately succumbed to her injuries at the scene.
At this time, police say they believe speed was not a factor in this collision and the investigation remains ongoing.
Police have determined the appropriate safety equipment was used during the incident.
The Collision Reconstruction Unit will not be releasing any names at this time.
Anyone with information into the incident is asked to contact any of the Detective Constables of the Collision Reconstruction Unit at (905)546-4753 or (905) 546-4755.
