On May 8, 2021 at 3:13 pm, Grey Bruce OPP responded to an injured pedestrian that was thrown from a moving motor vehicle on Bradley Street, near Grey Street in the Village of Dundalk, in the Township of Southgate.

A person had jumped onto the hood of a motor vehicle, then the driver drove away, with the pedestrian still hanging onto the hood. When the driver turned a corner sharply, the pedestrian fell to the ground, sustaining injuries. The pedestrian was treated at hospital for serious but non-life threatening injuries. The driver fled the scene.

As a result of this investigation, Grey Bruce OPP have charged a 23 year-old from Southgate, with the following offences:

  • Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, causing bodily harm, section 320.13(2) Criminal Code of Canada (CCC) 
  • Fail to remain, section 200(1)(a) Highway Traffic Act

The accused must attend the Ontario Court of Justice in Owen Sound on July 8, 2021.

 


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
