Windsor Police are looking for the driver of a vehicle involved in a “Hit and Run” collision yesterday morning on the city’s west side. At 8:45 a.m. on Monday, September 19, 2011, police attended the intersection of Huron Church Road at Girardot Street for a report of a motor vehicle collision with one vehicle failing to remain at the scene.
A black 2000 Volvo was hit, and has damage to the rear bumper estimated to be approximately $1500.00. The 18-year-old female driver of the Volvo was being attended to by Paramedics. She was transported to Metropolitan Hospital by ambulance with minor injuries where she was treated and released.
The Volvo had been travelling northbound on Huron Church in the curb lane approaching Girardot at approximately 30 km/h. Traffic at the time of the collision was heavy. The driver of the Volvo slowed down for traffic and was struck from behind by an older model white vehicle also travelling northbound on Huron Church. The driver of the Volvo then watched as the white vehicle reversed, cut across four lanes of traffic, causing other drivers to take evasive action to avoid further collisions. The white vehicle then travelled west on and was last seen northbound on Dot Sreet from Girardot.
The driver of the Volvo was able to obtain a partial Ontario licence plate # “AFJ” on the white vehicle. The vehicle is described as being an older model Honda or Toyota, white in colour. The suspect vehicle had rust along both sides and the front grill of the vehicle. The vehicle sustained moderate damage to the front bumper and grill as a result of the collision.
The driver of the suspect vehicle is described as a male of middle eastern descent, approximately 30 years old, with short hair and facial hair, both black in colour. The suspect driver was the lone occupant of the vehicle.
Anyone who may have witnessed this collision or with any information regarding the suspect vehicle and driver is asked to call the Windsor Police Traffic Follow Up Unit at 519-255-6700 ext# 4211 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS
