Brampton man dies following motorcycle crash

A Brampton resident has died following a motorcycle accident, and Peel regional police are asking for witnesses.

On Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., Kevin Mitchell had been driving an orange Honda 2008 motorcycle, travelling eastbound on Sandalwood Parkway west of Kennedy Road.

“As a result of circumstances that are still under investigation, Mr. Mitchell’s motorcycle left the roadway and mounted the curb briefly, before returning to the roadway. The motorcycle then collided with an eastbound white 2002 Cadillac Escalade SUV,” Peel police said Thursday in a news release.

The 46-year-old was taken to hospital, but died of his injuries.

Police want to speak with anyone who witnessed the collision, or who may have seen Mitchell in the minutes before the collision.
