On Monday March 3rd, 2014, shortly after 2:30pm, Halton Regional Police were requested to attend and assist with an investigation involving a School Bus and a pedestrian in The City of Burlington.

This is going to get messy – there aren’t that many school bus companies around.

A 64-year-old female pedestrian, was observed walking south on Dynes Road at Woodward Avenue.  As she was crossing at that intersection, she was struck by what witnesses described as a short school bus.  The bus failed to remain at the scene, leaving the injured pedestrian in the traveled portion of the roadway. The pedestrian was transported to hospital with life threatening injuries.

Halton Regional Police Collision Reconstruction Unit attended and assumed control of this investigation.  Any persons that may have witnessed the victim in the area of the incident prior to the collision, or the collision itself, are asked to contact Halton Police Collision Reconstruction Unit, Detective Constable Chris Heffernan at 905-825-4747 ext. 5420
