Reporting guidelines followed by the Toronto Police Service, the City of Toronto Transportation Services, and the Ministry of Transportation, define a motor vehicle fatality as a collision which results in a fatality within 30 days of the date of the motor vehicle collision. It does not include a homicide or fatal injury as the result of an intentional act.

As a result of these guidelines, traffic fatality #42/2018 is no longer defined as a traffic fatality and has been designated as homicide #66/2018.

Therefore, traffic fatality #43/2018 (Claremore Avenue and Craiglee Drive) has now been re-designated as traffic fatality #42/2018.
