A late January accident on Upper Middle Road has resulted in the death of a Mohawk College student, in Canada on a student visa from India.

The 25 yr old foreign student residing in Burlington has succumbed to his injuries at Hamilton General Hospital on Wednesday afternoon sustained from a collision on January 23rd.

The student had been in critical condition since the crash, which occurred on Upper Middle Road near Headon Forest Drive.  His parents were able to travel to Canada and be with their son in the last few weeks.  He was residing with extended family in Burlington.

Police will not be releasing his name at this time.  This is the 2nd traffic fatality in Halton Region for 2014, and the first in the City of Burlington.

The accident took place January 23, 2014 at approximately 0240hrs.  Halton Regional Police responded to Upper Middle Road and Headon Forest Drive in the City of Burlington for a motor vehicle collision.  As police arrived on scene, it became apparent that two vehicles were involved; a silver four-door Volkswagen, which had rolled over on the north side of Upper Middle Road and a white four-door Toyota, which had struck a tree on the centre median.  Both vehicles were westbound when the collision occurred.
