Boy appearing to cross St. Anne’s Road critically injured in crash: Winnipeg police

Winnipeg police were dispatched to St. Anne’s Road near the corner of Varennes around 8:20 a.m. Tuesday to a crash involving a boy who appears to have been crossing the street.

Police said the boy is under the age of 10. He was sent to hospital in critical condition.

Tuesday morning a pair of black boots and a couple pieces of clothing could be seen lying in the roadway.

Police have closed St Anne’s Road between Varennes Avenue and Bank Avenue to investigate.

Police expect the blocked section of St. Anne’s Road to remain closed through the evening rush hour commute.

Officers say the driver involved in the collision remained at the scene and it’s too early to say whether any charges will be laid.

“It appears likely he was crossing the street, but I don’t know why he was crossing the street,” said Const. Rob Carver.

He said it doesn’t appear the intersection has a high incident of collisions.
