St. Charles College Student Killed in Motor Vehicle Collision

June 22, 2009 - It is with the great sadness that the Sudbury Catholic District School Board announces the death of one of its students from St. Charles College.

On June 21, 2009 at 12:40 a.m. members of the Greater Sudbury Police Service and the Emergency Medical Service responded to a fatal motor vehicle collision that occurred in the area of Municipal Road 80 near Gatien Avenue in Hanmer.

Caitlin Jelley, a 15 year old, Grade 9 student at St. Charles College was walking on Municipal Road 80 with two friends when they were struck by an eastbound vehicle. All three victims were transported to hospital and have passed away as a result of injuries received in the collision.

A team of grief councillors is presently on site at St. Charles College to help students and staff deal with the death of their classmate.

Words cannot express the depth of sympathy for her family at this time. St. Charles College will be holding a prayer service for Caitlin's friends in the school chapel, Tuesday, June 23, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at this time.

We ask for your prayers for Caitlin's family during this most difficult time.

“We are devastated by the tragic event and our heartfelt condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to the families.”
