A 46-year-old man is charged with several impaired driving-related offences in a crash that killed a cyclist and injured at least four other people.

The man remains in custody after Saturday’s chain-reaction collision, which occurred on Kennedy Road at the off-ramp from Highway 401's eastbound lanes.

The cyclist, 37-year-old Henry Mejia, was killed and four people, including an infant, were taken to hospital to be treated for various injuries, according to police. Mejia was a father of two.

Shortly before the fatal crash, a Dodge Durango and a second vehicle were involved in a collision on Highway 401 at Bayview Avenue. No one was injured in that collision.

The driver of the Durango drove off and continued east on Highway 401, where the vehicle exited at Kennedy Road and went through a red light, Toronto police said in a news release Sunday.

The vehicle then struck Mejia, who was northbound in the crosswalk on the west side of Kennedy Road, and continued into the intersection, where it collided with four southbound vehicles and one northbound vehicle, police said.

Kathleen Noble, a witness, said the Durango was travelling at high speed when it went through a red light and struck the cyclist.

The driver of the Durango was arrested at the scene. He was the lone occupant of the vehicle.

In addition to impaired driving causing death, Alvaro David is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm and four other offences, police said.

During a brief court appearance Sunday morning, David was remanded into custody and told to return to court Tuesday.

Police are asking anyone with information about the crash to call investigators at 416−808−1900 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416−222−TIPS (8477).
