The vehicle crossed into the northbound lanes of traffic striking a Sports Utility Vehicle and then mounted a curb where the vehicle then collided with two children that were walking on the sidewalk in front of their family members. A thirteen (13) year old boy and a four (4) year old girl of Haldimand County, Ontario were struck. The four (4) year old girl was subsequently pinned underneath the vehicle and then dragged several yards before the vehicle came to a stop after colliding with a building.
The father and mother immediately went to their children's aid and rushed both to a local area hospital. The four (4) year old female was then transported to a Hamilton area hospital and is currently being treated for life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the vehicle was also transported to a local area hospital however she was not injured. The thirteen year old male suffered serious non-life threatening injuries. The remaining family members were not injured.
Main Street between Parkview Road and King Street was closed for several hours to allow for further investigation.
