An elderly Cambridge man is dead after a T-bone crash Friday afternoon in that city.
Officials responded to the collision on Coronation Boulevard near Cambridge Memorial Hospital just after 1 p.m.
They say initially, the 89-year-old driver did not appear to be seriously hurt.
“When the paramedics took the gentleman from the vehicle to the ambulance ... he went VSA [vital signs absent] on the way to the hospital,” says Sgt. Stu Church with the Waterloo Regional Police service.
The incident is still under investigation, but police say they’ve determined the deceased man pulled out of a driveway and was attempting to make a left-hand turn when the T-bone crash occurred.
The other driver, a 28-year-old Cambridge man, suffered minor injuries.
Police say road conditions were not a factor, and would like to hear from any witnesses.
“We know that Coronation Boulevard is a busy road, especially at 1:15 in the afternoon, so anyone who saw this please give us a call,” notes Sgt. Church
The name of the 89-year-old victim has not been released.
