News: Hamilton Spectator: Driver Charged in pedestrian fatality on York Blvd

Driver charged in fatal pedestrian crash on Hamilton's York Blvd.

A 22-year-old Hamilton man is facing a careless driving charge in relation to a fatal collision that killed a 62-year-old pedestrian last month.
The man was crossing in front of 221 York Blvd. around 4 p.m. Nov. 23 when he was hit by a car leaving the parking lot, police said.
He died of his injuries a week later in hospital.
The 22-year-old driver remained at the scene and speed and alcohol were ruled out as factors.
After a nearly month-long investigation by the collision reconstruction unit the driver is now charged with careless driving under the Highway Traffic Act.
Police have not released the victim's identity.
