OSHAWA — Police are appealing for witnesses to step forward as they continue their investigation into a crash early Sunday in Oshawa that saw two bystanders injured. A 25-year-old Whitby woman remains in a Toronto trauma centre with serious injuries following the incident, which saw a Camaro slam into the front of a Tim Hortons outlet on King Street East at about 1:10 a.m. May 29, Durham police Sergeant Bill Calder said. The unidentified victim and another woman, a 19-year-old Ajax resident, were exiting the restaurant when the eastbound Camaro left King Street and slammed into the building, causing extensive damage to the glass entry.

Police said a passing tow truck operator used his tow cable to pull the car from the wall and free the Whitby woman, who was pinned against the building. The driver of the Camaro and passenger weren t injured. Charged with two counts of dangerous operation causing bodily harm is Daniel Shaw, 59, of Clarington.

Police continue to investigate the possibility street racing led to the crash, Sgt. Calder said.

It s too early to say but we re definitely investigating that angle, he said.

We ll investigate all possibilities. Police are now looking to speak with two people they believe witnessed the crash.
