Pedestrians fearing for the safety were force to jump back from the roadway as the vehicle continued past the Centre Wellington District High School at a high rate of speed.
Levi VANDERLAAN, 20-years-old of Elora, has been charged with Careless Driving contrary to the Highway Traffic Act. He is scheduled to appear in Guelph Provincial Court in May, 2019 to answer to the charge.
