Ottawa Accident Highway 417
A terrible accident last night has left one young boy at Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario with serious personal injuries after being thrown out of the vehicle upon impact. The Ottawa accident occurred on Hwy. 417, close to the Pinecrest exit. The most seriously injured was a young 6 year old boy who had severe road-rash injuries and was rushed to CHEO in serious but thankfully stable condition. 3 other children, a 1 yr old boy, 10 year old boy and 11 year old girl were also treated for personal injuries and brought to CHEO. I wish everyone a full and hopefully a speedy recovery.
There were also 2 other adult passengers in the vehicle . They escaped without injury. The Ontario Provincial Police are investigating the accident. If you witnessed this accident on Highway 417 or have any information that could help in the investigation, please contact the Ottawa Police.
