This holiday weekend was slaughtered on the road.
Sunday's Peel Regional Police were dealing with two fatal car accidents that occurred on Saturday night. One occurred in Brampton and the other in Mississauga.
The Peel Regional Police first encountered a collision at Mississauga's Derry Road and Ninth Line around 10:30 pm.
According to Peel police police officer Heather Cannon, two cars were involved in the accident. One was driven by a man in his 40s who was taken to a local hospital.
"He has a non-life-threatening injury," Cannon said on Sunday.
Another car was driven by a 20-year-old woman who was taken to a trauma center in a life-threatening condition.
Her 20-year-old passenger died on the scene.
"Both cars were at the intersection and the major collision took over," Cannon said.
"They provide specific details."
The accident at Derry Road and Ninth Line was "still under investigation," she said.
In Brampton, one person has died and another has been detained for a disability-related crime all night in two car accidents.
Peel Police crashed at 12:39 am on Creditview Road and Wanless Drive in Brampton and discovered that passengers were thrown out of one of the cars during the collision.
The exiting passenger was sentenced to death in the hospital.
The driver of the car, a 29-year-old man, has been detained, the police officer said.
The other car had three people, including a nine-month-old baby, all of whom were taken to the hospital.
"Her mother was taken to a local hospital and was in crisis," Cannon said.
"She is stable now."
Cannon added that both the father and the baby in the car are okay.
The arrested driver is still in a trauma center suffering from non-life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses said speed was the cause of the Brampton collision and the arrested driver may have emitted a red light, but these details have not been confirmed by police. ..
