Police seek more input on Ontario St. accident

Jon Scattalon, 24, of Grimsby remains in serious but stable condition after being struck by a vehicle on Ontario Street Grimsby on Saturday, Feb. 22.

Police have narrowed the time of the accident to between 2:22 p.m. and 2:25 p.m.

The Grimsby Fire Department, along with the Niagara Emergency Medical Services and the Niagara Regional Police Service, responded to reports of a pedestrian being struck on Ontario Street at the QEW westbound ramp.

Just before 2 a.m., he exited the night club and got separated from his friends in the area between John Street and Catharine Street, but was able to secure transportation back to the Grimsby area.

Police are asking for anyone with information regarding this fail to remain investigation to contact Police at (905) 688-4111, extension 5500.
