A Georgetown man is facing charges in connection with the May 19 hit-and-run accident at Guelph St. and Normandy Blvd. that left 19-year-old cyclist Nancy Houle seriously injured. Halton Police report that after a lengthy investigation by the service's Regional Traffic Bureau a man was arrested Thursday afternoon. Charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm and failing to remain at the scene of a collision is Corey Henderson, 19, of Arborglen Dr. He is to appear in Milton court on July 28. When asked to comment on the fact charges have been laid Heather Eagleson, Houle's mother, said, "that is great news, we are very happy." "I think it's about time," said Houle, who suffered a broken hip and fractured skull in the accident. She is recovering at home and undergoing physiotherapy treatment. She praised police for doing a "magnificent job" in investigating the collision, and said she has a message for the person who would be convicted in connection with the accident that left her lying seriously injured on the road. "The only thing I can say is you are a heartless, selfish person. There are no words to express how I feel," said Houle. "You put me through a near-death experience, you caused my life to come to a complete halt, which not only caused me problems, it has affected the people who care for me. I've never considered myself to be a vindictive or uncaring person, however, this time I truly hope (the person convicted) gets whatever he deserves to the fullest extent of the law."
