Hamilton Police say charges are pending against the driver of a vehicle that destroyed a bus shelter on Main Street near Victoria spreading debris across the intersection.

Speed was a factor, says Staff Sergeant Andrew Toms.

The collision happened around 7:15pm with dozens of witnesses at the high pedestrian central Hamilton intersection.

Thankfully, no pedestrians were struck at the busy intersection and the driver received only “very minor” injuries.

Debris from the bus shelter was thrown over 30 metres onto the lawn of a long-term care home across the street, and glass covered the entire intersection.

The intersection of Main and Victoria is the cross-section of two urban highways and a site of frequent serious collisions.

Collision barriers are installed on the northeast corner to protect the school playground.

Police say alcohol was not a factor in the collision and they do not believe any other vehicles were involved.
