From CBC Ottawa:
Police say a 22-year-old Ottawa tourist is in critical condition after being struck by a car in Miami, Fla. Miami-Dade police say Alexander Sanghwan was walking on the edge of a road around 5:30 a.m. on Sunday when he was struck.
His mother Patricia Sanghwan told CBC News Tuesday the University of Ottawa graduate was trying to hail a taxi after leaving a downtown nightclub when he was hit from behind. The family was on vacation in Florida when Alexander and his older brother went to Miami for a music festival, she said. Patricia said they live in the west-end community of Stittsville and Alexander was in the process of applying to medical school.
