Snowmobile accident results in head injury
Sadly, a 16 year old male remains in critical condition in Ottawa’s CHEO trauma centre after a terrible accident on 8th Line Road and Glenwood drive, close to Metcalfe, Ontario. The accident happened last night around 10 pm. The teen had been standing beside his snowmobile at the side of the road when he was hit by another vehicle and thrown several feet away. He suffered a severe head injury, as well as serious injuries to his body and legs. He remains in critical condition at CHEO. What a terrible thing to have happened to this young boy. My thoughts are with his family at this very stressful time and I hope he is able to recover fully from this awful accident.
It has been reported that the driver who hit this young boy fled the accident scene. He has since been tracked down but Ottawa police are still investigating. If you have any information that could help, please contact the Ottawa police at 613-236-1222 ext 2481.
