One person is dead, a man and a woman are seriously injured and the injured man has been charged after a crash in Mississauga overnight, Peel police say.
The crash, involving three vehicles, happened near the intersection of Mineola Road and Hurontario Street. Emergency crews were called to the road shortly after midnight.
Peel Regional Police, Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services and Peel Regional Paramedic Services all attended.
A 19-year-old man from Mississauga was pronounced deceased at the scene. He was the sole occupant of his vehicle.
A man and a woman, who were in another vehicle, were injured in the crash. Both were taken to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
On Saturday night police said the man, 46, has been charged with operation while impaired causing death, dangerous operation causing death and failure to stop after accident resulting in death. He has two previous convictions for impaired driving, police said.
A man and woman in a third vehicle were treated at the scene for minor injuries, Const. Heather Cannon said.
