On May 14, at approximately 6:20 p.m., Victoria County District RCMP, fire and EHS responded to a report of a collision on Pierro Lane. RCMP officers learned that a child playing on the side of the roadway, on a small non-motorized ride on toy, was struck by a Ford F-150 that veered across the road when the driver fell asleep.

The pedestrian, a girl under the age of ten, suffered serious injuries and was transported to hospital by EHS.

The driver of the Ford, a 47-year-old Wagmatcook man, did not suffer physical injuries. He was charged with Failing to Drive or Operate a Motor Vehicle in a Careful and Prudent Manner under the Motor Vehicle Act.
