Mississauga, March 18 (CINEWS): It happened on a dark and rainy morning (March 14) when Parimal Armarshi was struck by a vehicle and killed.
Peel Regional Police continue to investigate the death, believed to be Mississauga’s first pedestrian traffic fatality of 2016. Officers with the force’s Major Collision Bureau are looking into whether the foggy weather and rainy road conditions factored into the collision, which occurred just after 7 a.m.
Police say the 47-year-old Mississauga man was crossing Britannia Road at Silken Laumann Way when he was hit by a car, according to police.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The death comes just days after Peel police warned all road users that the time change and nicer weather could bring an increase in pedestrian collisions. Daylight time, March Break and milder weather all mean more cyclists and pedestrians will be out and about, some during hours that were once daylight and will now be dark because of the time change, police say.
Police are reminding drivers, pedestrians and cyclists they all need to be aware, alert and extra vigilant, especially around school zones, intersections, crosswalks and bus stops.
Witnesses to the fatality are asked to call police at 905-453-2121, ext. 3710.
