Police say a 22-year-old man has been charged with impaired driving following a Scarborough crash that sent three people to hospital Sunday morning.

It happened near Danforth Road and Eglinton Avenue East shortly after 3 a.m.

“I appears that a silver Honda Odyssey was travelling eastbound on Eglinton and just at the intersection here it rear-ended a blue Saturn… causing it to propel and end up where it is hitting a lamp post,” Sgt. Orang Momeni told CP24 at the scene.

“As a result of the collision, three people went to the hospital. One of the individuals is in critical condition.”

Police say the condition of the 49-year-old man critically injured in the crash has improved since receiving treatment in hospital.

The two other people injured in the crash suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Honda, who has been identified as a 22-year-old man, is facing a number of charges in connection with the incident, including impaired driving causing bodily harm, criminal negligence causing bodily harm, failing to stop causing bodily harm and refusing to provide a breath sample causing bodily harm.

Momeni said the collision reconstruction team is on scene and it appears speed was also a factor in the crash.
