A 40-year-old Ottawa man is facing charges in connection with a hit-and-run in a parking lot at Algonquin College.

Mohamed Amer is charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm, leaving the scene of an accident and public mischief.

Ottawa police laid the charges after a 20-year-old man was run over by a vehicle at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Paramedics reported the vehicle was in reverse when it struck the man and ran over both of his legs.

The victim is recovering from serious but non-life threatening injuries in hospital.

Amer's next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 24.
