Po­lice seek driver in hit-and-run

Windsor Star - - CITY + REGION -

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).
