A 36-year-old woman and her seven-year-old son are in life-threatening condition in hospital after being hit by an alleged impaired driver in the driveway of their Brampton, Ont. home Tuesday morning, Peel Regional Police say.

A woman and her seven-year-old son are in life-threatening condition in hospital after being allegedly hit by their fathers pickup truck in the driveway of a home in Bramptons Mount Pleasant area on Tuesday morning.

Peel Regional Police said they were called at about 8:30 a.m. to the Conductor Lane and Portsdown Road area, just north of the Mount Pleasant GO train station.

The little boy was actually sitting up, leaned up against one of the firefighters. He looked like he mightve been in a little better shape. The woman was laying kind of motionless, they had an apparatus for breathing, like oxygen, on her face. They were tending to her wounds, he said.

Acting Sgt. Bancroft Wright said the driver of a Honda Ridgeline pickup reversed into the pair, possibly striking them with an open drivers side door.

They (the woman and boy) were at the drivers door. The drivers door was open, the driver was sitting in the drivers side, and he backed up, striking them with Im going to assume the door, Toronto police Const. Bancroft Wright said.

The vehicle then continued into the garage of a townhome, tearing bricks from the structure and damaging the garage door of the townhouse.

The man, who police have identified as 41-year-old Jonathon Leon, was arrested and is facing two counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and two counts of dangerous operation causing bodily harm. He was first arrested at the scene for impaired driving, but on Tuesday night, Const. Iryna Yashnyk said there were “not enough grounds” to charge the man with impaired driving.

They were taken to a local hospital for assessment and later transferred to a trauma centre for treatment.

The incident occurred around 8:30 a.m in an area near Mount Pleasant GO Station and Mount Pleasant Village Public School. The woman, 36, and boy, 7, were first taken to hospital and then rushed to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries. They are now in stable condition. Investigators are determining whether the incident was a domestic dispute.

Acting Sgt. Bancroft Wright said the woman is in stable condition and the boys condition was later upgraded from life-threatening to stable.

Police said Leon will be charged with two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and two counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm.
