The driver is the second man to be charged in connection with the crash

Hamilton police have charged a second man with dangerous driving causing bodily harm after a crash last month that sent three people to hospital with broken bones.

Emergency crews were called to the scene of the crash on Queenston Road East and Kenora Avenue on March 18.

A police news release states that a black 2008 Maserati was travelling at a high rate of speed on Queenston when it collided with a Mercedes Benz SUV driven by a 24-year-old Hamilton man.

The Maserati subsequently left the road and crashed into two hydro poles before hitting the SUV again, police say.

In a previous statement, Hamilton police say that “the driver of the Maserati fled the area on foot leaving his injured passengers behind.”

All three passengers in the Maserati were taken to hospital with broken bones. The driver of the SUV stayed at the scene of the crash.

Later that day, the Maserati driver was arrested.

Now, Hamilton police say the driver of the Mercedes is also facing three charges of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
