posted on March 10: Four people hurt on picket line


Hamilton police have laid charges after a truck hit four people at the Cootes Drive entrance to McMaster on Friday.

According to police, the truck driver went through the picket line, struck three people who were picketing, then struck a University security officer who tried to stop the vehilce. Fortunately all of the injuries were minor. A Hamilton man has been charged with dangerous driving and three counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

The University will be in court on Wednesday in an attempt to limit picketing on campus. The injunction request is partly based on public safety issues, including concern for the safety of MUSA members who are on the picket line.
