Pedestrian sent to hospital with serious injuries after incident on Hamilton Mountain roadway
Hamilton police say road closures are in effect on a busy Mountain thoroughfare Friday morning after a crash involving a pedestrian.
In a social media post just after 7 a.m. HPS said the collision reconstruction team was at Upper Wentworth Street just north of the Lincoln Alexander Parkway.
“Expect a police presence and road closures. Please avoid the area,” HPS said on Twitter.
Hamilton paramedics chief David Thompson told Global News the pedestrian who was hit is a 42-year-old man who was sent to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries.
So far in 2022, the city has seen seven pedestrian-related deaths, with the last involving the death of conductor Boris Brott.
Last year, the city recorded nine fatal pedestrian incidents — the highest annual total in a decade, according to police.
