BRANTFORD — A 39 year old female is injured, and the same car is believed to be responsible for two crashes in Brantford’s downtown core early Friday morning.
Police were called after a vehicle crashed into a building at Darling and Market Streets at 6:30 a.m..
Wilfrid Laurier University’s Student Center at the Brantford Campus is at the crash location and was closed for the day as a result.
An earlier crash occurred at Dalhousie and Rawdon Street. Police say a vehicle, identified as a white Pontiac Grand Am, collided with a city bus and then fled the area.
Preliminary investigation suggests that the two collisions are connected and involve the same motor vehicle.
A Brantford woman was transported by emergency medical services to a hospital in Hamilton with serious injuries. No other injuries have been reported in either accident.
The area of Dalhousie Street between Stanley Street and Drummond Street and Darling Street between George Street and Charlotte Street were closed for several hours during the investigation as members from the Collision Reconstruction Unit processed the collision scenes.
Some witnesses have come forward at the scene, however, the Brantford Police Traffic Unit would like to speak with anyone that has further information regarding this incident.
Witnesses are encouraged to contact Constable Jeremy Morton at 519-756-0113
