Police have arrested a 58-year-old Oakville man after allegedly striking and killing a woman and her dog Thursday afternoon. Halton Regional Police arrived at the scene around 2:14 pm after being informed of a collision in the Lakeshore Road East and Burgundy Drive area, according to Halton Police.

The initial reports said that the pedestrian was struck and badly injured, however when emergency crews made it to the scene, the 51-year-old woman and her dog were dead.

The collision reconstruction unit showed up at the scene and later determined that the car was driving eastbound on Lakeshore before leaving the roadway to the south side.

According to police, the car drove off the road and into a pathway where the woman was walking her dog. The car was then redirected in to the roadway after striking a decorative stone post.

The driver was assessed by paramedics, and this morning, police arrested the 58-year-old man in connection to the accident. He was arrested for impaired operation causing death and dangerous driving causing death.

Police are asking anyone with more information to contact (905) 825-4747, extension 5065.
