Child left alone in vehicle after Port Severn-area rollover

Penetanguishene man charged

A Penetanguishene man is facing charges after a single-vehicle crash that sent a child to hospital.

The OPP were called to the 400 near Port Severn Road around 3 p.m. Saturday with reports of a rollover. Investigators say the driver fled before police arrival, but a child was found alone in the vehicle. They were taken to Toronto hospital as a precaution.

A 23-year-old man was found not long after with the help of the OPP’s canine unit. He faces charges including driving under suspension.
