A 52-year-old Cambridge, Ont., woman is facing multiple charges including dangerous operation of a vehicle after police say a motorist nearly drove into a young child outside a home in Central Huron earlier this week.
Huron OPP say the incident happened Tuesday morning around 10:30 a.m. at an address on Orchard Line.
Investigators say they were told the motorist nearly drove into the toddler, collided with a parked motorcycle on the property, and then drove away.
The driver was later located and taken into custody, police said.
The accused faces a charge of dangerous operation, failure to stop after an accident, and two counts of failure to comply with a probation order.
She has since been released from custody with a May 30 court date in Goderich, police said.
No other details have been made public.
