Police in Peel Region are investigating after a young girl was struck by a car in Brampton.
The victim was hit just before 8:30 a.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Thorndale Rd. and Rouge St., in the area of Castlemore and The Gore Rd. in the extreme eastern portion of the city.
“She was transported to a trauma centre, and we’re waiting for results of her assessment,” Peel Regional Police Const. Heather Cannon told the Sun.
“Her parents have been notified.”
The driver remained on scene, and roads in the area will be closed for investigation.
