Deadly Crash in Markham Leaves One Dead, Two Injured

A two-vehicle collision in Markham, Ontario is currently being investigated after one of the vehicles steered off the exit into the Keating Channel. Around 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, Toronto police responded to an emergency call on Lakeshore Boulevard East and Cherry Street. 


According to police, the Jeep Grand Cherokee that broke through the ice of the Keating Channel belonged to an 18-year-old who lost control of his vehicle and ran into a Ford F150 heading eastbound. Around 12:24 p.m., emergency crews arrived and were able to remove the Jeep from icy waters although a driver was not found inside.


About 45 minutes later, an individual believed to be the missing driver was pulled out of the water nearly four hours after the crash. Although life-saving measures were enacted, the teen driver later succumbed to his injuries in a nearby hospital.
