The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Hamil­ton po­lice con­tinue to search for a rental truck driver who al­legedly fled the scene of a five-ve­hi­cle crash.

It was “for­tu­nate” no one was hurt in the pileup Mon­day shortly af­ter 3 p.m on Welling­ton Street at Can­non Street East, said spokesper­son Const. Steve Wel­ton.

It’s not clear why the U-Haul truck crashed into the other ve­hi­cles, he said, adding that the driver fled. The driver is ex­pected to face charges of care­less driv­ing and fail­ing to re­main at the scene of an ac­ci­dent, Wel­ton said.

He’s de­scribed as a white man with dark hair. He’s be­tween five­foot-nine and five-foot-11. He was seen car­ry­ing a black bag.
