MISSISSAUGA — Still fighting for his life in hospital, a Beeton man was charged with driving drunk this morning (Tuesday, May 6) following a devastating crash on the QEW in Mississauga over the weekend that ripped his van in two and killed his lone passenger.
Officers from the OPP’s Highway Safety Division’s (HSD) Port Credit Detachment continue to investigate the five-vehicle collision which occurred on the QEW in the eastbound lanes, east of Cawthra Rd., just before 7:30 a.m. Sunday (May 4).
Police announced this afternoon that Bohdan Igorovyc Doroshyn, 25, who was driving the van that started the horrific sequence of events, has been charged with drunk driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death. He was arrested at the hospital and remains under police guard.
The crash killed Doroshyn’s lone passenger, 30-year-old Dmytro Garanin, of Etobicoke, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say a disabled Nissan Murano was stopped in the right lane of the QEW, with a tow truck in front of the vehicle preparing to remove it and a Ministry of Transportation crash/blocker truck positioned behind the disabled vehicle warning motorists of the hazard.
A short time later, witnesses reported a white van travelling on the QEW approaching the crash truck and crashing into the rear of it. As a result of the impact, the involved van was ripped open and Doroshyn and Garanin were ejected. The van then struck a black Mazda 5 before coming to rest against the left shoulder. The driver of the black Mazda lost control of his vehicle and struck the disabled Nissan Murano. The Murano was then pushed forward into the tow truck that was directly in front of it.
The three occupants in the Mazda 5, a 29-year-old Oakville man, a 19-year-old Mississauga woman and a 19-year-old Thunder Bay woman, all sustained minor injuries and were transported to hospital. The driver of the disabled Murano, a 51-year-old Mississauga man, was transported to hospital with minor injuries. The 25-year-old Bolton man driving the MTO crash truck was also taken to hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the tow truck was not injured.
Anyone with information is still being asked to call the OPP at 905-278-6131.
