Pedestrian struck in two-car crash
Police want to hear from man who walked away
Police are trying to find a pedestrian who was struck in a downtown Hamilton crash but walked away.
Two drivers involved in the crash at the intersection of Main and Wellington streets around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday are facing charges.
Police say a white vehicle was turning left from Wellington onto Main when it collided with a black SUV heading east.
Both vehicles then travelled a short distance and the white vehicle then struck the pedestrian.
The SUV hit a telephone pole and pay phone.
A bystander checked on the pedestrian, who said he was fine, then went to the vehicles’ occupants. Three people were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Police say witnesses saw the pedestrian walk away and he did not appear to be injured.
Both drivers were charged under the Highway Traffic Act: a 36-year-old man for careless driving and a 35-year-old man for driving while suspended.
Police officers couldn’t find the pedestrian after he walked way from the cash scene but police want to find him to make sure that he’s OK.
Any witnesses, including the pedestrian, are asked to call police at 905-546-4925 or to offer tips anonymously through Crime Stoppers: 1-800-222-8477 or www.crimestoppershamilton.com
