On a cold Thursday evening a 75 yr. old Oakville resident was rushed to Hamilton General Hospital where he remains in serious condition after being struck by a vehicle on Mainway Drive and Northside Road.

Police were called to the scene just before 7 p.m. in response to a report of a pedestrian being struck by a car.

Paramedics attended the scene and got the pedestrian to hospital.

The driver of the car, a 44 yr. old Burlington man, was not injured.  He was taken to the 30 Division station where he was interviewed before returning home.

Due to the seriousness of the injuries, the Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) was called to the scene.  Reconstructionists have taken over the investigation.  The intersection was still closed as of 11 p.m. while the CRU measured the scene and collected evidence.

Preliminary indications are that the senior was crossing Mainway when he was struck near the intersection with Northside by the vehicle, a black 2006 Saturn sedan.

Any witnesses are asked to contact the CRU at ext. 5065.

Police will not be releasing the name of the pedestrian or the driver.  Next-of-kin are being notified.
