The LaSalle Police Service is investigating after a 7-year-old, LaSalle girl was involved in a collision with a car on Matchette Road just before 4 pm on Wednesday afternoon.
Investigation into the accident revealed that the girl and some schoolmates had just gotten off the school bus on Kenwood and were proceeding home on foot along Matchette Road. The girl suddenly darted across Matchette Road just as a vehicle was passing by. The driver of the vehicle tried to swerve to avoid the collision but the girl ran into the passenger side and was thrown to the ground. She was transported to the hospital by ambulance where she continues to be treated for her injuries.
Investigators kept the road closed for several hours to collect evidence and document the scene.
We would like to thank everyone that came out to help the little girl as well as for providing water to our first responders.
