The driver of a vehicle that struck two children in Glace Bay last week has been issued a ticket under the provincial Motor Vehicle Act.
Austin Snow, 64, of Glace Bay, is charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The ticket was issued Tuesday and comes with a fine of $693.95.
The children continue to recover from their injuries in a Halifax hospital.
Destiny Burke, 11, and her eight-year-old brother, Braydon, suffered serious and extensive injuries. Destiny is suffering from a broken femur in one leg and a broken bone in the other. She is also being treated for a bruised liver and fractured ribs.
Braydon received a serious head injury, broken bones in his hip and received stitches to close a gash above one eye.
Cape Breton Regional Police responded to the accident at about 10 p.m. Friday having received a report of two children being hit while crossing near 696 Main St. in Glace Bay.
At the time of the accident, the children were in the company of their father, Tony Angione, who in an interview with the Cape Breton Post said he thought for sure he had lost his children. He had just picked his children up from their grandmother's home and they were returning to their home on Duke Street at the time of the accident.
