M’CHIGEENG—No charges have been laid after a 64-year-old man of Lively accidentally plowed into Season’s Restaurant in M’Chigeeng with his pickup truck on Wednesday of last week.
Kat Corbiere, who works at the restaurant, told The Expositor that she was sitting in the restaurant at about 5:30 pm with her brother when her brother shouted, alerting them to a red pickup truck that was moving quickly toward the restaurant. “It wasn’t slowing down,” she said.
The force of the impact caused the front wall to be pushed in and at the very place a man and woman were eating dinner, causing debris to fly everywhere and the woman to fall to the floor. She sustained minor injuries to her head, back and neck.
Ms. Corbiere called 9-1-1, and paramedics and police responded to the scene with the woman being sent to the Mindemoya Hospital.
UCCM Anishnaabe Police responded to the call and issued a breathalyser test on scene. The driver blew within the warn range, between 0.05 and 0.08 mgs, and was given a three-day suspension. No charges have been laid in the incident.
Season’s Restaurant is closed for the time being, but is still taking on catering jobs until the foundation is repaired.
