Elderly Man Run Over Twice by Semi on Bishop Grandin

Winnipeg Police CrestWinnipeg police have laid charges against the driver of a semi-trailer truck involved in a crash that seriously injured a man in his 80s on Bishop Grandin Boulevard near the Pembina Highway underpass on February 10.

Police appealed to the public in looking for a witness to the crash, where the elderly driver of a pickup truck had his mirror clipped by a semi-truck at around 12:40 p.m.

The man was injured while attempting to exchange particulars with the other driver, who police say ran the man over twice. He remains in hospital in stable condition.

Police identified a man in his 20s who stopped to offer assistance and later identified the other driver involved.

A 49-year-old man has been charged with driving careless causing bodily harm, and two counts of failing to exchange particulars.

He was released on a promise to appear.
