Fort Erie man charged after farmers field joyride
A Fort Erie man has been charged after hitting his friend in an evening joyride through a farmers field.
A group of friends were driving an old vehicle through a field on Bowen road when they got stuck in the mud. Two men left the truck to find help, while a third remained in the car.
Another friend at a nearby house heard the revving truck, located it and helped pull it out of the mud. The freed truck then sped off and struck one of the males walking, and was transported via ambulance to Erie County medical centre with non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the car, a 34-year old Fort Erie man, was charged with careless driving, and operating a vehicle without a license.
