CKTB-News- Hit and run NOTL

A 21 year old Pelham man charged in connection with a deadly hit and run in Niagara on the Lake has been released on bail.

Patrick McCabe appeared before a St. Catharines court yesterday after he was charged Wednesday with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and failing to stop at the scene of an accident resulting in death.

A 33 year old woman from Mexico, who worked at a local farm, was struck Saturday night by a pick up while walking along Concession 7 Road.

She died later in hospital.

Meantime, the Migrant Workers Alliance has organized a vigil for Sunday night at 7:00 at Concession 7 and Line 6 Road to honour the victim and to also bring attention to the migrant workers left displaced last weekend after a fire gutted Pioneer Flower Farms in St. Catharines.
