  • Overhead Crew 304 was at an intersection waiting to make a left turn onto South Kingsway. A dump truck travelling eastbound made a right turn in full view of the crew and struck a woman crossing, then stopped on top of her. The driver then backed up and ran over her again, tearing her leg open. The driver then fled the scene.
  • Two crew members jumped out of the truck and started to perform first aid with radio communication to the two other crew members who followed the dump truck. One of the members held the woman’s artery by hand to stop the bleeding until emergency services arrived.
  • The dump truck turned again and Crew 301, located just down the road, noticed and started following as well. Together the two crews were able to block the truck when the driver tried to make a three-point turn. When the assailant jumped out of the truck and began to run, members of the team chased him, leading to the apprehension and arrest of the individual.
