No charges in snowbank accident

No charges will be laid after a 14 year old girl was run over yesterday.

RCMP say the girl was walking on the street because of snow-clogged sidewalks and started to climb a snowbank to get out of the way of an approaching truck. But she slipped down onto the road and the truck ran over her legs. She was taken to hospital but her injuries were described as not serious.

RCMP say the girl was walking facing traffic. The truck was making a legal turn and the driver’s view was blocked by the snowbank. No charges are being considered.
