Dead body found by Lake Ontario in Mississauga.

A man faces multiple driving-related charges after colliding with another vehicle in Stoney Creek last night—resulting in the deaths of two women— before fleeing the scene.

Hamilton Police say around 11:30 p.m., emergency services responded to a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Highland Road East and Tapleytown Road on Stoney Creek Mountain.

According to investigators, a 2013 Ford Flex carrying four occupants, two men and two women, was heading northbound on Tapleytown Road when it was struck by a lone driver in a 2022 Ram 1500.

The two women inside the Ford vehicle were pronounced deceased at the scene, and both men were transported to a hospital with serious injuries. Currently, one man remains in hospital in stable condition, police say.

Authorities have not disclosed the identities, ages, or places of residence of the victims.

The driver of the Ram was located near the scene by officers and is currently in police custody.

The HPS Collision Reconstruction Unit was called in and has taken charge of the investigation.

The roads along Highland  Road and Tapleytown Road East were closed for several hours for further investigation and have since reopened.

Police say a 36-year-old man from Hamilton has been charged with two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and two counts of failing to remain causing death.

Investigators have not released an image of the accused or his name at this time.

Further details surrounding the crash have not been provided by police.

Individuals who may have any information pertaining to this incident is asked to contact the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 905-546-4753.
