Police Seek Hit-And-Run Driver

Windsor police are asking for the public’s help in finding a driver involved in a hit-and-run crash.

The incident occurred shortly after 10am Sunday. Police say they were called to MacDougall Ave. and Elliott St. E for a report of a collision involving two vehicles and a transport truck.

Constable Andy Drouillard says the transport truck was travelling north on MacDougall and was stopped at a red light, with a grey SUV waiting right behind it. A white pickup truck struck the SUV, pushing it into the transport truck in a chain-reaction collision.

The SUV ended up pushed against the rear of the transport truck. The driver had to be extricated from the vehicle and was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the white pickup truck ran from the scene after the pickup ended up against a building.

The driver is described as a white male about 30 years old. He is 5′ 7″ tall with a slim build, blonde hair, and was wearing a grey hoodie.

The Traffic Investigations Unit is still looking into this incident.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash who hasn’t already spoken to police, or who can identify the driver of the white pickup is asked to call Windsor police at (519) 255-6700, ext. 4000. Anonymous tips can be phoned into Crime Stoppers at (519) 258-8477 (TIPS) or submitted online at www.catchcrooks.com.
