Vandalism targets accident-hit family

The mother of the seven year-old-boy who was hit by a pickup truck at the intersection of Highway 53 and 2A

The mother of the seven year-old-boy who was hit by a pickup truck at the intersection of Highway 53 and 2A on Tuesday, Aug. 26 is appealing to public for information that could lead to the capture of vandals who smashed the windshield of her car, the only means of transport for the family.

The mother who wished to remain anonymous said she had found the windshield of her 2004 blue Chevy Cavalier smashed upon her return from Edmonton’s Stollery hospital, where his son had to be taken for emergency treatment.

“While we were at the Stollery, my vehicle stayed at the guest parking at the General (hospital). When we returned the Friday (Aug. 29) to pick up my car, we discovered the windshield had been smashed,” she said.

The hospital management says, according to the mother, they cannot help because they have no camera monitoring the guest parking area and the police say they have no leads to follow.

Anyone with any information to offer regarding the incident is requested to contact the RCMP detachment, quoting file #2014-108-8658.
