A Toddler Was Struck And Killed By A Car In A Brampton Driveway Last Night

Peel Police are calling it a "very tragic accident."

A Brampton Toddler Died After Being Struck By A Car

A child was hit by a vehicle in Brampton at around 12 a.m. on Monday and died a short time later.

"We received a call just after midnight, that a one-year-old had been struck by a vehicle in a driveway at Royal Salisbury Way in Brampton," said Peel Regional Police to Narcity over the phone.

The toddler was taken to a local hospital in a life-threatening condition and died at around 1 a.m.

No charges have been laid at this time and the Major Collision Bureau is now investigating the incident.

"We're just trying to provide as much support as we can to the family and putting out as little information as possible right now because we don't want to re-traumatize them now that no charges are necessarily going to be laid, so it's just a very, very tragic accident," said police.
