Vehicle Hits CAS Windsor

March 27, 2008 permalink

In an incident apparently unrelated to child protection, the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Society has again been damaged by a motor vehicle. Three and a half years ago, suicide bomber Jim Malone caused $1.5 damage to the CAS building. See Oct 26, Oct 27 and Oct 29 2004.



Man critical after crashing car on Riverside Drive

WINDSOR - Police say alcohol was a factor in a crash that sent one man to a London hospital in critical condition after the truck he was driving slammed into the sign outside the Children's Aid Society on Riverside Drive.

The accident happened just before 2 a.m. Wednesday. Police say alcohol was a factor, and the driver and passenger were both not wearing seatbelts.

"The vehicle went straight off the road and into the sign," said Staff Sgt. Ed McNorton. "There is no indication that there was any braking."

The 43-year-old passenger of the white F-150 pick up truck, who hit his head on the windshield, is in serious condition.

The 52-year-old driver also suffered head injuries, said McNorton.

Police and fire personnel responded to the crash at 1:42 a.m. McNorton said the police collision reconstruction team was on the scene. When officers arrived following the crash, someone was there trying to turn off the power to the sign, police said.

A flatbed truck had to haul away the pick up. The road was shut down between Lincoln and Devonshire roads until about 8 a.m. or 519-255-5777 ext. 642
