A multi vehicle crash in Oakville has claimed the life of a 40 year old man.
Halton police say it happened just before 1 o’clock Monday afternoon on Third Line between the North Service Road and Abbeywood Drive.
A car lost control, hit the centre median and slammed into a minivan from behind, forcing it into the back of a car waiting for the red light at Abbeywood.
The first car then hit a fourth vehicle which had also stopped for the light.
The driver of the first car was taken to hospital where he died.
Police do not believe alcohol or speed were factors in the crash.
A post mortem will be done to determine if a pre-existing medical condition may have been the cause.
Halton police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them.
