An 83-year-old Windsor man will have his licence reviewed after he allegedly struck a 9-year-old girl this morning.

Police say that at about 8:20am they were called to the intersection of Parent Avenue and Ellis Street for a report of a pedestrian being struck by a car.

The police investigation has determined that the man was eastbound on Ellis and made a turn to go north on Parent. At the same time, a school crossing guard was out in the street guiding children across the roadway.

Police say that somehow the driver did not see the guard or the child and sideswiped the girl.

She was taken to hospital for minor injuries.

The driver of the car was charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian, on top of having his licence reviewed by the ministry.
