Members of the Estevan Police Service are investigating an accident that occurred on Monday afternoon at the ECS.
Apparently, a vehicle was backing out and ran over the foot of a student in the parking lot.
"We actually learned about it when the youth went to the hospital," said Sergeant Evan Handley, "We'll have to take a witness statement from the individual that had his foot run over, we'll have to talk to the driver of the vehicle and any other witnesses that were in the area to see what happened, how the accident occurred, and if any charges are warranted from the situation."
He believes that it was simply a matter of driver inattention, though the results of the investigation will determine what, if any charges.
"It would depend on all the circumstances, but I think Driving Without Due Care And Attention, Distracted Driving if someone was using a cellphone or something like that, if it was a situation where someone was messing around it could be looking at Stunting or, if it was really serious, Dangerous Driving under the Criminal Code or Dangerous Driving Causing Bodily Harm."
"However, for something like this, I'm thinking Driving Without Due Care And Attention," Handley added, "I don't think it was something intentional, it was just something that happened. I don't think the driver meant to run anybody over, so we can hopefully dispel that as soon as possible."
The kid has a broken foot and will be in Regina to get it examined.
