Child Struck By Vehicle in Oakville Expected to Recover

 

A nine-year-old Oakville pedestrian who was sent to hospital after being struck by a vehicle in the north end of town is recuperating, say Halton police.

The young girl suffered a couple of broken bones and some road rash, but is expected to make a full recovery,” said Sgt. Dana Nicholas.

There are no charges at this time, pending more witness information.”

The Oct. 23 incident took place at 8:25 p.m. along Parkglen Ave., near Dundas St. W. and Third Line.

The vehicle, a 2014 Dodge Caravan, was driven by a 55-year-old Milton man who was heading eastbound, say police.

The victim suffered what appeared to be serious head injuries, and as a result was transported to McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton where she was listed in serious but stable condition.

Speed and impairment weren’t factors in this collision, police said at the time.

The collision has led to the creation of a change.org petition dubbed ‘No more children injured on Pine Glen Rd.’ which has more than 1,400 signatures. 

The incident remains under investigation and any witnesses who haven’t yet spoken to police are asked to contact Const. Jenn Dewar of 20 Division at 905-825-4747 ext. 2205.
