Sudbury Daystarter - News

COLLISION: Police in North bay are still looking for witnesses to a crash on Saturday that sent three children and a woman to hospital. Police say they were standing near a downtown church on McIntyre Street at Cassells Street when they were hit by a vehicle. The children have been transferred to hospital in Ottawa and are listed as in stable condition. The woman is in hospital in North Bay. One person has been charged with four counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

DEVELOPMENT: As a new gas station is being built in Sudbury, crews in a different area of the city continue to clean up the pollution from an old service station. Tonight, city councillors will look at a new strategy for developing those kinds of contaminated sites. 

SAFETY: Police say they’re noticing a number of snowmobile riders not wearing their helmets properly and they’re warning that if a helmet isn’t correctly fastened, it’s as dangerous as not wearing one at all. Snowmobilers can be fined for not wearing one properly.
