Bradford | by Catherine Thompson  
An 81-year-old Bradford man struck by a vehicle has died of his injuries in hospital.

An 81-year-old Bradford man struck by a vehicle on Holland Street West in Bradford has died of his injuries in hospital.

On Sunday, December 30, 2018, around 7:00 p.m., South Simcoe Police Service
officers responded to a report of a pedestrian struck in the area of Holland Street West and Deer Run Crescent in Bradford West Gwillimbury.

Officers learned that a westbound vehicle stopped on Holland Street
West to make a left turn onto Deer Run Crescent when it was rear-ended by a Jeep.

Both drivers got out of their vehicles and stood in the road to assess the damage. 

A third westbound vehicle, a pickup truck, then hit the Jeep, pushing it forward and it hit the
Jeep driver.

Paramedics transported the 81-year-old Bradford man to a local
hospital. He was later taken to a Toronto trauma centre with critical
injuries. 

The man died in hospital yesterday (Tuesday).

The other drivers suffered minor injuries.
 
The investigation is ongoing.
