Man, 22, dead in single vehicle rollover in Burlington

A 22-year-old man was killed in a single vehicle rollover early Saturday in Burlington, Halton Regional Police say.

It happened around 3:45 a.m. Saturday, when a 2010 Volkswagen Golf was driving north on Walkers Line through the intersection with Britannia Road when it went off an embankment and crashed into the ground, police said in a release. 

The vehicle rolled several times before coming to rest in a wooded area, Halton police Sgt. Brett Wilkinson said.

"The roads were wet. We don't know how fast he was travelling," Wilkinson said.

Police say a passing motorist noticed the vehicle and called police, but emergency personnel were unable to revive the driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Halton police's collision reconstruction unit at 905-825-4747 ext. 5065 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
