Ottawa motorcycle accident results in orthopedic injuries and possible head injury and spinal injury. Ottawa injury lawyer David Hollingsworth
Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth — A terrible Ottawa motorcycle accident resulted in 2 young adults being rushed to an Ottawa hospital early this morning, after a motorcycle accident at Daly Avenue. Ottawa Paramedic treated 2 people for serious personal injuries. A young woman in her 20s was treated for serious orthopedic injuries -fractured arm and possible head injury and spinal injury. A 23-year-old man was treated for serious personal injuries including a fractured arm. Thankfully , they both were in stable condition by the time they arrived at the hospital. My thoughts are with them and their families at this very stressful time. I hope to soon be able to share some better news on their recovery.

My thoughts go out to the friends and family of Aleesha Van Loon. I was happy to read that she is recovering. The 15-year-old teen continues to recover from a serious head and spinal injury six days after she was in an accident , when she was struck by a car when she was crossing the road in front of Parry Sound High School.
the Police reported that Aleesha Van Loon lives in Seguin Township, and was crossing Joseph Street on Thursday afternoon when she was struck by a car driven by a 17-year-old Parry Sound High School student coming out of the school’s parking lot.
The girl’s mother, Carrie Van Loon, and other family members have been filing updates on a Facebook page to let friends know how the teen is doing.
According to the posts, Van Loon suffered fractures to her skull and damage to her spleen. She also has fractured vertebrae, but X-rays suggest doctors won’t need to operate.
Thankfully her family has been updating everyone, saying that she is doing much better and recovering. It has been reported that Aleesha is doing well, with a breathing tube removed and is now awake, disoriented, and answering basic questions correctly. Her family clearly loves her and described her as “a fighter”, according to the report in the Ottawa Citizen. A quote from the Citizen:
“Although all of this is very upsetting,” she said (her mother). “She is doing really, really good.”
A police report said Van Loon was taken to the West Parry Sound Health Centre by ambulance, and was then air-lifted to an Ottawa hospital. REports indicate that the OPP Technical Collision Investigator was called in to assist with the investigation, which is still underway, police said Monday.
The Ottawa Citizen also reported that Shahina Butt, principal at Aleesha’s high school, said 4 or 5 guidance counsellors from the Near North District School Board came to help students deal with emotional issues after the car accident. She said things at the school have returned to normal now.“We are hoping that the child is okay,” she said. “The students definitely feel for their fellow students.”
One man, who lives close to where Aleesha was hit, said witnesses saw the her fly almost 20 feet after being struck.
Get better Aleesha !!
