[05-05-2024] One Person Killed, Another Hospitalized After Pursuit Led to Multi-Vehicle Collision in OntarioOne person was killed, while another was hospitalized after a police pursuit led to a multi-vehicle collision in Ontario on Sunday morning, May 5, 2024.

According to the Ontario Police Department, the deadly incident happened just after 10:30 a.m. near Grove Avenue and Philadelphia Street.

OPD said that they received a disturbance report around the area at about 10:30 a.m., wherein two women said they were being threatened by one of their boyfriends using a firearm. Officers tried to resolve the matter peacefully, but the man fled using a vehicle instead. This initiated a high-speed pursuit.

The man recklessly drove on the wrong side of the road on Highway 60 with the police on his back. Upon arriving near the Grove Avenue and Philadelphia Street intersection, the suspect vehicle crashed into an innocent motorist’s car, which then resulted in a chain of crashes.

Unwilling to stop, the man jumped out of his vehicle and tried carjacking another driver using his gun. The ordeal only came to a stop near Cucamonga Avenue and Cedar Street after police were left with no choice and shot the man. The suspect was rushed to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Two people were injured as a result of the multi-vehicle collision caused by the suspect’s reckless driving. One of them died, while the other was hospitalized for minor injuries. The identities of the victims were not disclosed.

Further details were not immediately available. Police work is underway.

What Should You Do After An Ontario Car Accident?

First, you should check on all passengers, drivers, and pedestrians involved. If they need medical help, call for an ambulance immediately. Make sure that you don’t move anyone who is unconscious or reports back or neck pain unless their life is in imminent danger, for example, from a fire or oncoming traffic. Since car accidents are unexpected, you also need to do the following:

  1. Call the police to report any deaths, injuries, or substantial property damage. Get the names and badge numbers of the officers who are at the scene of the accident. Later, you need to call the police department and request an accident report.
  2. Take pictures of all parties involved, including their driver’s licenses and insurance cards, as well as their vehicles. Do not forget to capture any visible damages, skid marks, and the vehicles’ points of rest.
  3. Take note of the street names, traffic lights, and signs.
  4. Talk to the witnesses and obtain their phone numbers and addresses.
  5. Preserve evidence by taking pictures of your injuries.
