Bizarre car crash kills young Hamilton man who was parked on dead end road at airport
27-year-old woman thought she was on a through road, police said
GLANBROOK -- A young Hamilton man is dead and a 27-year-old local woman is in hospital after a bizarre early morning car crash on a dead end road near Hamilton airport.
Police said an airplane hobbyist was sitting in a parked car on Glancaster Road watching flights land when another car driven by a 27-year-old Hamilton woman collided with his just after midnight.
No names have been released.
Police said it appeared that the woman thought she was on a through road. The road ends at a fence that surrounds the runway.
The man, who was a student in his mid-twenties, was parked in the middle of a circular loop of road.
Normally, a street lamp positioned on the turnaround would have lit up the white car, but police said that someone had recently broken the lamp that illuminates the area, which is a local gathering spot for late-night parties.
Police were called to the scene by a resident after the injured woman came to her door.
A week ago, a car travelling the same road crashed through the airport fence.
