OTTAWA – A woman has been rushed to hospital in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle in the east end.
Emergency crews responded to St. Laurent Boulevard, at Belfast Road, just after 7 a.m.
A woman in her 50’s had been struck by a small van, suffering head and chest injuries — as well as a fractured femur.
The woman was stabilized by paramedics on the way to the hospital, but remains critical.
St. Laurent Boulevard is closed southbound at Belfast Road, so expect delays in that area.
