Peel police are reporting that a third child has died following a multi-vehicle collision in Brampton that has now claimed four lives and left a male with life-threatening condition. Peel police Constable Brancroft Wright said three children and an adult female have been confirmed dead as a result of the crash in the area of Torbram Road and Countryside Drive on Thursday (June 18). Police were somehow involved in the incident and the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has invoked its mandate and are investigating, however Peel police said they could not provide any details as to the nature of the police involvement in the collision or if any cruisers were directly involved. Police also haven’t released the identities, genders, ages or any other details about the children or female victim, or of any of the relationship between the four deceased victims and the male, who remains in life-threatening condition at a trauma centre. “I don’t know what the status of the (male) individual is. I know that there are four that have died. Three are children and one adult female,” said Wright. Officers attended the scene after reports of the crash at approximately 12:15 p.m. Two air ambulances were dispatched to rush the injured parties to hospital and two of the children and the female were pronounced dead a short time later. Police provided an update at 5:13 p.m. indicating the third child had also succumbed to their injuries in hospital. “We offer our condolences to all of those that have been affected by this tragic incident,” wrote Peel police in a tweet. UPDATE: - the child that was transported to trauma centre has died
