On the 3rd of October 2012 at approximately 8:35 am Officers from the Sault Ste Marie Police Service were called to St. Georges Ave. at the entrance to St. Basils High School for a report of a pedestrian being struck by a motor vehicle.
As a result a 56 year old male was transported to the Sault Area Hospital by Ambulance and later flown to Sudbury where he succumbed to his injuries.
Preliminary investigation has revealed that the pedestrian was walking westbound on the sidewalk on the south side of St. Georges Ave, when he was struck by an east bound pickup truck being driven by a 48 year old male that was turning into the driveway at St Basils.
The identity of the victim will be withheld until notification of the family has been completed.
