Woman re­mains in crit­i­cal con­di­tion af­ter crash on QEW

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

A Hamil­ton woman re­mains in crit­i­cal con­di­tion fol­low­ing a two-ve­hi­cle crash on the QEW near Brant Street on Mon­day.

The 37-year-old was driv­ing a Toy­ota Corolla on the west­bound stretch of the high­way when she col­lided with a com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle around 2 p.m., OPP spokesper­son Sgt. Kerry Sch­midt said.

“Right now it ap­pears that this cube van may have ac­tu­ally been dis­abled or slow­ing down be­cause of an is­sue on the high­way,” Sch­midt said.

The woman was trapped in her ve­hi­cle and, once ex­tracted, was trans­ported to hospi­tal.

Po­lice are speak­ing to ad­di­tional wit­nesses to try and piece to­gether what hap­pened.

Any­one who wit­nessed the crash is asked to call the Burling­ton OPP de­tach­ment at 905-681-2511.
