A Hamilton woman is dead and four people have been taken to hospital after a multi-vehicle crash in Flamborough Wednesday afternoon.
It happened at around 1 p.m. on Highway 6 at the Carlisle Road intersection, next to the Tim Horton’s and Petro Canada gas station.
In a video posted to Twitter, OPP Sergeant Kerry Schmidt said a passenger in the back of an SUV that was hit from behind by a delivery truck was pronounced dead at the scene.
He said two people in the front of the SUV were taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Two other people who were in the other vehicles that were hit from behind by the SUV, which was propelled forward by the truck, suffered minor injuries.
“We’re still trying to determine what colour the traffic signal was, if it was a red light, green light or if traffic was moving or stopped,” said Schmidt.
