Halton police are investigating the death of a man after a vehicle drove into a pond in Milton Sunday night.

Police said officers were called at around 7:10 p.m. to the area of Bronte Street North near Steeles Avenue for a report of a vehicle collision.

Investigators said a vehicle was driving northbound on Bronte when it left the roadway and went into a small pond on the east side of the roadway. No one saw anyone exit the vehicle.

“The vehicle was recovered from the pond after several minutes and the lone male occupant was rushed to the hospital for life-saving measures,” police said in a news release.

The 34-year-old man from Windsor died of his injuries in hospital.

Police later uncovered that the vehicle — a silver, four-door sedan — had been stolen.

There has been no word on what caused the vehicle to leave the roadway.

Investigators would like to speak with anyone who has dashcam footage of the area around the time of the incident.
