Police report road rage led driver to strike pedestrian

Three calls from citizens reporting a vehicle leaving the scene after striking a pedestrian near the No Frills plaza Monday morning have resulted in dangerous driving charges.

Cst. Karen German, community safety officer, reports that between 9:30 and 9:40 a.m. Prince Edward County OPP received three calls stating a pedestrian was struck by a white minivan and the vehicle left the location.

“Police determined through investigation that the collision was a result of a road-rage event on the Loyalist Parkway that occurred just prior to the 38-year-old male being struck in the parking lot of the plaza,” said German. “The male victim declined medical attention after receiving minor injuries.”

She notes the suspect and vehicle were later located at a construction site on Treasure Cove Lane in Athol. A 35-year-old Lindsay resident has been charged with one count of Dangerous Driving – Section 320.13(1) Criminal Code. He was released to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice on Wednesday Sept. 25, 2019 at Picton.
