WINNIPEG — Police are asking for witnesses to come forward after a woman in her 60s was struck by a piece of snow-clearing equipment on December 16, 2016.
The woman was walking in the 700 block of William Avenue across from the Health Sciences Centre emergency entrance at around 4:40 p.m. A sidewalk snow-removal machine struck her as it travelled westbound on William Avenue. The woman was attempting to cross William Avenue at the pedestrian crosswalk at the time.
An officer with the Dakota Ojibway Police Service has been cleared after a suspect claimed he suffered a broken wrist while in custody.
The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba initiated an investigation after the man’s arrest on May 19, 2016. Police were called to a residence where the homeowner was trying to prevent her son from breaking in.
