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.
