Street racing gets the blame for a dramatic head-on crash on the west mountain.
Hamilton Police say two cars, an Acura and a Honda, were “street racing” eastbound yesterday afternoon on Fennell Avenue between Garth and West 5th, when one of them crossed into the westbound lanes and slammed into a third vehicle.
The driver of the Honda was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Those in the Acura stayed for a time to survey the accident scene, but then left the area.
Police note that debris from the collision damaged three additional vehicles and they say charges are pending.
