Mississauga, ON (5 November, 2021) ---
In accordance with the Special Investigations Unit’s name release policy, requiring consent from next of kin in death cases, the Unit is now able to identify Shellome Peart as the woman who died following a collision with a driver who was fleeing police in Brampton early this morning. The 21-year-old woman died in hospital after the vehicle she was driving was struck by a driver who fled when an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer attempted to make a traffic stop.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
At approximately 2:45 a.m., an OPP officer attempted a traffic stop of a vehicle before the driver fled. 
  • The vehicle was then involved in a collision with another vehicle, driven by the woman, at Sandalwood Parkway East and Dixie Road.
  • A man and woman were taken to hospital. The woman died in hospital. 
  • The man remains in hospital with serious injuries.

Three investigators and three forensic investigators have been assigned to the case.
