Pedes­trian struck in two-car crash

Po­lice want to hear from man who walked away

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

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
