WINNIPEG – A woman is at home recovering Wednesday after being hit by a truck while trying to see past a snow bank.
Breanna McMillan said she was dropping off her four-year-old to daycare Tuesday morning when she was struck by what looked like a snow hauling truck.
She said she couldn’t see past the snowbank and had to slowly inch in to traffic to see when the road was clear to turn on to. All the while, her four-year-old daughter sat in the back seat.
McMillan said she’s frustrated by all of the snowbanks that surround the city.
The city said with three big snow storms already this winter, crews are not only working through the night, but also through the day to get roads clear and snowbanks along major roads cleared.
Ken Allen with the City of Winnipeg said all of his workers and contractors that can be out getting rid of snowbanks, are out. However, at this time he doesn’t know if and when residential areas will be attended to.
