Girl, father on way home from her hockey game hit by train west of Winnipeg
A Manitoba girl remains in critical condition after her father's truck was hit by a train.
Taylor Piskor, 15, and her father, Peter, were driving home from Taylor's hockey game on Jan. 10 when their truck was struck by a train near Elie, west of Winnipeg. The collision occurred a short distance from the family's home.
Todd Edwards, a spokesman for the family, says Taylor remains in a coma weeks after the incident. She has extensive injuries and is in critical condition.
"Her mom and dad remain by her side and their only focus is on their daughter's desperate battle," he wrote in an email.
Edwards says Peter also sustained injuries to his back and needed surgery for a broken arm.
As a fundraiser for the family, the Winnipeg East Saints is hosting an exhibition game Thursday evening, featuring Taylor's team, the Capitals, the Rangers and the Saints at the Notre Dame arena in St. Boniface.
