3 people were injured, one critically, in a Brampton crash on Wednesday night and two people are in police custody, say Peel Regional Police.

A stolen car driven by a 15-year-old boy crashed head-on into a minivan, police allege.

Const. Rachel Gibbs, spokesperson for Peel Regional Police, said Thursday that police received a call about the crash in the area of Bramalea Road and Peter Robertson Boulevard at about 11 p.m.

Gibbs said the 15-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were in the car when it collided with the minivan, which was being driven by an adult female. Debris was strewn across the road after the crash. The 15-year-old driver allegedly fled the scene, but was caught by police and taken to a local hospital for treatment, Gibbs said. He was arrested after he was released from hospital.

The 15-year-old was charged with: dangerous driving, failure to remain at the scene of an accident, possession of a stolen vehicle, and three counts of breach of recognizance. He is due in youth court on Thursday for a bail hearing.

The 18-year-old passenger was rushed to a trauma centre in Sunny Brook Hospital,  Toronto in critical condition.

She said, “Both were placed under arrest as the vehicle turned out to be stolen .The investigation is still ongoing.”

Anybody who witnessed anything is urged to call Peel Regional Police.
