There was a fatal collision on Monday morning in downtown Windsor that claimed the lives of two teenagers. The crash happened at Glengarry Avenue and Riverside Drive East around 1:20 a.m.
The crash is being evaluated by Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU). They say Windsor police were trying to get a Dodge Charger to stop after they say it drove through a red light at Ouellette Avenue and Park Street.
The driver of the Charger did not pull over and continued down Ouellette Avenue. The driver turned onto Riverside Drive and was involved in a collision at the intersection of Glengarry Avenue. The collision involved two other vehicles: a Toyota SUV and a minivan.
The Charger had four people inside it. A 19-year-old in the vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene. Two others in the car had to be hospitalized. This includes a 17-year-old who was fatally injured.
One person who was in the Toyota received treatment at hospital, but the seriousness of this person’s injuries is not known.
SIU gets involved in situations where the conduct of officials may have resulted in death, severe injuries, use of a firearm at someone or sexual assault.
If you have information about the incident, such as video footage or photographs, you can contact the SIU lead investigator (1-800-787-8529 or via the website).
