1. WOMAN GETS STRUCK BY CAR
On April 30th, 2012 at 11:50pm a 2007 GMC Sierra driven by a 57 year old Elmira man was travelling westbound on Massey Road. The truck had a load of flat sheet steel in the box – which had not been properly secured. When the truck accelerated westbound, after stopping at Imperial Road N., the load of steel slid out of the pickup box – and landed in the intersection of Imperial Road N. and Massey Road. The driver of the pickup stopped and tried to load the steel back into the pickup bed. A 45 year old Cambridge female stopped to help. At this time a 2005 Pontiac G6 driven by a 59 year old Guelph female was travelling southbound on Imperial Road N. The front of the Pontiac struck the lowered tailgate of the GMC Sierra, the sheet steel, and the female.
The female was transported to Hospital by GWEMS – with major (but not life threatening) injuries. The driver of the GMC Sierra was charged with having an Insecure Load and Driving While Under Suspension. The driver of the Pontiac G6 was not charged at the scene, but the investigation is ongoing.
