Dina Mejalli, a partner of Greg Monforton & Partners, has been hired by the family of an 18-year-old who was struck and killed by a vehicle in Leamington on May 15.
Morgan Harder was using a crosswalk to cross Erie Street South, just south of Oak Street West, on his way to work at the Highbury Canco factory when he was hit by a gray Pontiac.
The teen was rushed to the hospital where he died from serious injuries on May 17.
Ontario Provincial Police is continuing its investigation into the accident, but says it does not anticipate issuing any charges.
Speaking for the Harder family, Mejalli said, “We have been asked by the family to help them understand what happened and why it happened.”
Mejalli and the Greg Monforton & Partners team is investigating the tragedy and looking for anyone who witnessed the collision or was at the scene in the aftermath. We are working to gather evidence before memories fade and witnesses disappear.
Mejalli also said, “The Harder family is devastated and is suffering immense pain and they have asked us to thank the media for respecting their privacy at this time.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident or can help with the investigation is asked to contact Mejalli at 519-258-6490.
