Halton Regional Police say they have arrested and charged a 33-year-old Oakville woman with impaired driving causing death and other offences after a cyclist was struck and killed in the Town of Milton Friday night.
Just after 9 p.m. Friday, police said a 50-year-old man from Oakville was riding his bike southbound on Tremaine Road, south of Lower Base Line, when he was struck from behind by a black vehicle travelling southbound.
The cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not yet been released. The vehicle involved failed to remain at the scene, but was found by police a short while later.
The driver has been charged with impaired operation causing death, having a blood alcohol level over 80 milligrams, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and failing to stop at a scene causing death.
Halton Regional Police’s collision reconstruction unit closed Termaine Road in both directions for about five hours to investigate.
