Sarnia Police and Ministry of Transportation spent most of March 6 investigating the death of a St. Thomas woman at the London Road Tim Horton’s

Sarnia Police say a man who they believed saw an accident which killed a woman at a Tim Horton’s has been interviewed.

Early March 6, a St. Thomas woman died when she was hit by the transport her common-law husband was driving. An autopsy shows she died of trauma and blood loss. Police don’t know what happened but says it doesn’t appear she slipped and fell. Media Relations Officer Const. Heather Emmons has also said there was nothing suspicious about the incident.

Experts with the Ministry of Transportation examined the transport as it sat near the drive-thru that day and found no mechanical problems which would have lead to the accident.

Police were looking for a man in his 60’s who was inside the Tim Horton’s on London Road when the woman was struck. They’d hope he might be able to shed new light on the incident. Emmons says the witness did come forward and was interviewed but provided no new information for police to work with.

Emmons says the traffic division is actively investigating and hopes  anyone with information is asked to call the police at 519-344-8861, extension 6127.
