Winnipeg, Manitoba — January 26, 2018 — Winnipeg autobody shops should look out for drivers asking them to do direct payment work on a beige sedan or red SUV with damage consistent with a minor crash.
On Monday, 12-year-old Jordyn Snyder says she was struck by a piece of metal debris from a collision on Mount Royal Road and Ness Avenue. While she has been left with a concussion, she has been left unable to receive benefits from Manitoba Public Insurance because the crash went unreported, leaving her parents responsible for the cost of two-weeks worth of constant monitoring while her brain recovers – though the organization is covering some of the cost of the girl’s physiotherapy.
While physical evidence of flying car debris has been found at the scene, there is no security camera at the intersection. Snyder, struck on the head and concussed, also failed to take note of the license plates of the cars involved.
Police have asked the public who witnessed or knows anything about the incident to come forward with information.
