Cornwall Police Service (CPS) blotter update.

CORNWALL, Ontario – Police are saying it could be several days, if at all, before any information is released on how a traffic accident on Brookdale Avenue resulted in the death of a pedestrian on her way to get groceries.

Cornwall police Const. Dan Cloutier reiterated Monday the investigation into the incident, in which Claudia Ordonselli found herself pinned beneath one of two vehicles involved in the crash, is continuing.

“We won’t have information on that…(for) a couple of days,” said Cloutier. “It’s a thorough investigation, obviously.”

Cloutier prefaced his remarks that police may not release any information, depending on how the investigation evolves.

Cloutier would not comment when asked if charges are pending in the incident, once again deferring to the fact that investigators have not completed their work.

Meanwhile the mourning is continuing at the Brookdale Avenue Tim Hortons where Ordonselli worked. Her boss, owner Darryn McPhail, said Ordonselli was a valued member of the team who made customers and other staff members feel wlecomed.

“The sky was always bright and everything was shining with her,” said McPhail. “Everybody loved Claudia. You couldn’t not. She always had a smile that covered her whole face. The team definitely will have a hard time with it.

“When new people came in she gravitated to them. Claudia always made sure the new people were brought in. She touched so many people every day with her warmth.”
