The Intersection of Pillette and Seminole (Google Streetview)

At 7:20pm Wednesday evening a 32-year-old male pedestrian was attempting to cross Pillette Road at Seminole Street with the right of way eastbound on the north side of the intersection.

The pedestrian was in the crosswalk when he was struck by a late-model four door vehicle, white in colour, which had been traveling eastbound on Seminole prior to turning left in the intersection in order to continue northbound on Pillette Road.

The pedestrian was thrown onto the hood of the vehicle where he subsequently struck the windshield.

The pedestrian was not seriously injured and did not require medical treatment at the scene. The driver of the vehicle stopped momentarily and rolled his window down partially allowing the pedestrian to see him. The driver of the vehicle than sped off northbound on Pillette Road without checking on the pedestrian’s condition or providing any information to him.

The driver of the suspect vehicle is described as a 60-year-old male of Asian descent. He was the lone occupant of the vehicle. The suspect vehicle may have incurred damage to the hood or the windshield as a result of the collision.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or has any information regarding the driver or vehicle is asked to call the Windsor Police Traffic Branch at 519-255-6700 ext 4218 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS (8477).
