Second child has died after Sunday collision in Vaughan driveway: York police's Profile



York police say a 10-year-old girl has now died after she was struck by a vehicle in a Vaughan driveway.

It happened just around noon Sunday on Athabasca Drive near Dufferin Street and Major Mackenzie Drive.

Police say a Mercedes Benz left the roadway and struck two kids and their neighbour who were standing in the driveway fixing the chain on a bicycle.

Earlier Monday, police announced the girl’s four-year-old brother had died.

Charges to the 16-year-old driver have now been upgraded to two counts each of dangerous operation causing death and criminal negligence causing death.

The neighbour, an adult man, suffered non-life threatening injuries and was treated in hospital.

Additionally, the teen boy is charged with dangerous operation causing bodily harm and criminal negligence causing bodily harm.

The 16-year-old cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Police have released few details about the crash as they are still calling on witnesses to come forward.

If you saw the crash or may have dashcam footage of the collision, you are being asked to come forward.

Investigators have opened a digital evidence portal where members of the community can upload any photos, video surveillance or dashcam footage of the collision. Evidence can be uploaded directly to investigators here.

York Regional Police is asking anyone with information to contact the Major Collision Investigation Unit by calling 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7704, or to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
