Police say they’re looking to speak to a cyclist who likely witnessed a crash in York Region earlier this month that killed a mother and daughter.
York Regional Police said that at around 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, June 11, officers responded to a crash in the area of Warden Avenue and Stouffville Road in Whitchurch-Stouffville.
A dump truck with a trailer collided with a Toyota Corolla that had two occupants, police said.
The occupants of the Corolla — a mother a daughter — died at the scene.
The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital.
In a news release Wednesday, police said investigators obtained surveillance video which shows that a cyclist was heading south on Warden Avenue and stopped at the northwest corner of Warden and Stouffville.
The cyclist “was likely a witness to the entire sequence of events,” the release said.
“We are asking this person to please come forward,” the statement continued.
Any other witnesses who have not yet spoke to investigators or who may have dashcam video of the crash are being asked to contact police.
“We would also like to speak to anyone who saw either of the vehicles or has information on driving behaviors prior to the collision,” police said.
