An Erin man is facing several charges after an Acton woman jumped or fell from a moving van on Cleaveholm Dr. Monday morning. Halton Police report at approximately 9:50 a.m. area residents were shocked to see a woman leaning out of the open door of a moving van shouting for them to call police. Seconds later the woman, 40, jumped or fell from the moving van landing on the road. The driver of the van continued on without stopping. The woman, who was unconscious with serious head injuries, was taken to Milton Hospital in critical condition then later airlifted to Hamilton General Hospital where she underwent surgery. Tuesday afternoon she was reported in very serious but stable condition. As a result of investigation, police arrested a man as he returned to a vehicle parked on Main St. in Acton later that morning.
