Fatal morning collision

Thunder Bay Police say a woman is dead after a 2 vehicle collision occurred this morning just before 7 o'clock at Victoria and Leland.

The driver of the second vehicle ran away. Police confirm one of the vehicles involved, a pick-up truck, was stolen. They are still looking for the driver of that vehicle. The name of the victim has not been released.

Memorial ceremony held today

The Memorial Grove program will hold a ceremony Sunday at the Slovak Legion at 2 pm to commemorate the replanting of almost 400 Memorial grove trees. Chairman Bill Bartley says seeing the trees come down was very difficult for him especially because one of the trees was planted in memory of his late Mother. 385 memorial grove trees had to be removed earlier this summer for maintenance to the Neebing-McIntyre Floodway.
