Police seek driver in hit-and-run
Windsor police are looking for the public’s help in finding a driver who fled the scene of a downtown crash Sunday morning. Around 10:10 a.m., police were dispatched to the intersection of McDougall Avenue and Elliott Street East after a collision involving three vehicles. When police arrived, they found two vehicles with “substantial damage” directly behind a transport truck, which had minor damage to a rear bumper. There was also damage to a nearby building. Investigators determined the transport truck was travelling north and stopped at a red light at Elliott. A grey SUV travelling in the same direction was struck from behind by a white pickup truck, according to police. The impact pushed the SUV into the rear of the transport truck. Windsor Fire and Rescue crews had to extricate the male driver of the SUV who was transported to hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries. The driver of the pickup fled the scene on foot and was last seen northbound on McDougall. He is described as a white male, blond hair, about 30 years old, five-foot-seven, with a slim build and wearing a grey hoodie. Anyone with information is asked to contact Windsor police at 519-255-6700, ext. 4000 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS).
