BURLINGTON, ON.  August 10, 2013.  There was an accident at the intersection of Plains Road and Hillsdale Avenue in Burlington early in August between a car and a motorcycle.  The driver of the car fled the scene.  The motorcyclist, a Dundas resident, was seriously injured and taken to an “area hospital.”

Just another hit and run accident?  Apparently not.  The car that struck the motorcyclist was being followed by the OPP.

The car was located in the City of Hamilton.  It was unoccupied when found and police have “strongly urged” the driver of the car “to seek legal counsel and arrange to turn themselves in.”  The police used the word “themselves” suggesting that there was more than one person in the car when it struck the motorcyclist.

The discovery of the vehicle in Hamilton was the result of a keen-eyed area resident, police reported.

The Halton Regional Police have said “There will be no further comment from the Halton Regional Police Service pending the conclusion of the SIU investigation.
