A 65-year-old Mississauga man is dead after he was struck by two vehicles near the Lorne Park-Port Credit border.
Both drivers remained at the intersection, said Peel Regional Police Const. Bally Saini.

Officers were sent to Lakeshore Rd. W. and Broadview Ave. at 7:40 p.m. Friday.
That’s where the pedestrian was hit  — first by a westbound SUV, then an eastbound car.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Charges haven’t been laid as of Saturday morning.
Police are looking into whether the man was jaywalking; the closest traffic light is about two blocks east at Maple Ave., or the Shoppers Drug Mart plaza.
The major collision bureau is investigating.
Anyone with information is asked to phone (905) 453-2121 ext. 3710 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

One thought on “Mississauga pedestrian dead after being struck on Lakeshore Rd.

  1. this is a bad stretch of road, Poorly lit. there should be a pedestrian crossing at this location to stop people from getting killed crossing the street trying to get to the variety store! . There are mostly older people living in the apartments in the direct area. it is way to far a walk to get to either light to cross ! especially at -20. nobody will walk 3 city blocks either direction to get to the light! I have lived here 20 years and have seen a lot of accidents and a lot of people hit by cars in this location. it was unusually dark on that stretch when this happened. it looked like all the street lights were not on yet. the only lights were from the stores. I was at the store just 10 min after this happened. very sad. Poor lighting and drivers not paying attention
