According to police, at approximately 9:21 p.m. on Sunday, December 28th, 2014 the St. Catharines Fire Services, along with the Niagara Emergency Medical Services and the Niagara Regional Police Service, responded to reports of a single vehicle collision on Carlton Street at Grantham Avenue in City of St. Catharines, within the Regional Municipality of Niagara, Ontario.
Initial investigation revealed that a 21-year-old St. Catharines man was operating a 1994 Honda Civic and attempting to turn eastbound on to Carlton Street.
The 21-year-old driver lost control of the Honda and the vehicle left the south edge roadway, crossing several residential lawns. As the vehicle continued to travel out of control, in an easterly direction, it came into collisions with several trees, shrubs and garden ornaments, before becoming airborne, rolling an undetermined number of times and coming into final collision with an unoccupied 2003 Mazda that was parked in a driveway.
The 21-year-old Catharine’s man was transported to the Niagara Health Systems St. Catharines General Site before being airlifted to the Hamilton Health Sciences General Hospital Site where he remains in critical condition.
His name is not being released, and the incident remains under investigation by Detectives of the Collision Reconstruction Unit, and while they have determined that speed was a contributing factor they are asking for any witnesses with information are asked to contact Investigators at (905) 688-4111, extension 5500
