A Hamilton senior was killed in a two-car collision Thursday (May 22) evening in Binbrook.

Hamilton Police say shortly before 6:00 p.m., two motor vehicles were involved in a collision at the intersection of Highway 56 and Hall Road in Hamilton.

A 72-year-old Hamilton man was driving a 2002 Honda Accord northbound on Highway 56 approaching Hall Road.

At the same time, a 2011 GMC Sierra driven by a 40-year-old Hamilton man crossed Highway 56 in an eastbound direction from Hall Road when it was struck on its passenger side by the Honda, police say.

The occupants of the GMC vehicle were unharmed and the Honda driver was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

A 72-year-old Hamilton woman who was a passenger in the Honda was injured during the collision. She was transported to the Hospital by EMS but succumbed to her injuries in the hospital.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate this collision. At this time investigators have ruled out impairment and speed. The driver of the GMC vehicle has been charged, though the nature of the charges has not been disclosed.

Police are not releasing any names at this time.
