Sight and hearing impaired man's service dog nearly run over by negligent driver

Local blind and death athlete Kevin Frost and his service dog Woody came within a whisker of getting hit by a negligent driver this afternoon while trying to cross Jeanne d'Arc Blvd. from Youville to Grey Nuns Drive.

Frost and Woody were just stepping off the curb into the crosswalk when Woody stopped dead in his tracks as a signal it was dangerous to proceed. At the exact moment, a blue car was turning right from Youville Drive on to Jeanne d'Arc Blvd., coming close enough to brush both of them backwards to the curb and continued southbound on Jeanne d'Arc.

"Woody stopped right away on a dime to alert me, but the blue car decides to cut Woody off anyways by pushing Woody and me backwards," says Frost, who has five per cent tunnel vision which is the equivalent of viewing life through a straw.

Needless to say Frost was not impressed. "What is wrong with people when you see a service dog crossing the street and you continue to turn in front of them, especially when you and your service dog have the right of way?"

Forst and Woody were both left shaken by the incident.

Fortunately, there were several witness who saw what happened and came to Frost's aid to make sure that he and Woody were okay. Unfortunately, no one was able to get the car's licence plate number.

Frost is hoping someone might have been driving by art the same time who has a dash cam. If so he is asking them to contact him through his Facebook page. The incident happened at 3:58 p.m..

This is the second bad incident that Frost has experienced in the past several months. When he returned from a golf tournament in Nova Scotia in August, he and Woody were declined by an Uber driver at the airport because he wouldn’t accept a service dog in his car. He subsequently I sent a demand letter to Uber regarding the incident and so far the ride share company has declined to do anything about it. Not even an apology.
