TYOTOWN – A local driver has been charged after a pedestrian was struck by a pickup truck Friday, east of Cornwall.

Police say the truck hit the woman on Tyotown Road around 5:30 p.m. before the driver of a white Dodge Ram pickup drove away.

The 20-year-old victim was treated at hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

A 64-year-old South Glengarry man is charged with failing to stop at an accident scene resulting in bodily harm.

He will appear in an Alexandria court in February.
