Driver in parking lot thought he'd hit garbage

A man sleeping in a box was dragged under a car last night in a downtown 
parking lot.

The incident occurred around 2 a.m. this morning at a parking lot opposite 
the Bay St. bus station. The man, sleeping in a cardboard box in the middle 
of the lot, was run over by a car. The car's driver apparently believed he 
had hit some garbage, until he heard the shouts of the victim.

The 39-year-old victim was rushed to St. Michael's Hospital with non-life 
threatening injuries.
