MISSISSAUGA, ONT. - A sports car was crushed and shredded after smashing into a pole as it approached a speed trap in Streetsville Friday morning.
But the five young men inside the Ford Mustang managed to survive the horrific high-speed crash, which is now being probed by Ontarioís Special Investigations Unit (SIU).
ďItís hard to imagine that was ever a car,Ē area resident Derrick Stacey said Friday, looking at the wreckage on Eglinton Ave. W., just east of Mississauga Rd.
Stacey arrived home shortly after the collision ó which happened at 10:45 a.m. ó so he didnít see what happened. But he said itís quite common for motorists to speed along the stretch of Eglinton.
Stacey said itís not uncommon to see drivers travelling 100 km/h in the 60 km/h zone.
Itís believed the blue sports car was heading eastbound at a high rate of speed when it struck a light standard near Hewickís Lane.
The passengerís side of the convertible was demolished.
