The railway crossing as seen in Google Street View

Windsor Police are looking to identify the driver of a minivan following what they allege was a hit and run crash on Monday in East Windsor.

Police were called around 7pm to the area of Banwell and Tecumseh Road East and officers spoke with the driver of a black Dodge Charger who was stopped in the left lane on Banwell Road near the railway crossing.

The driver told police that she was driving North on Banwell approaching the railway tracks. The railway lights had activated so she stopped her car and was struck from behind by another vehicle.

The crash pushed her car onto the railway crossing and police say the woman had to drive forward to get off of the tracks prior to the train crossing.

Police say the vehicle that hit her stopped for the train and after it passed, the other driver pulled in behind the driver and inspected the damage with the victim.

According to police the suspect driver returned to her vehicle and left the scene north on Banwell.

Police say the car that hit the woman was an older model grey mini van with a licence plate similar to AFTC ***. The van has possible front end damage and is possibly a Honda or Toyota.

The victim described the driver as a white woman between 30-35 years of age with a skinny build, 5’6″ tall. The woman had long, auburn coloured hair tied back and was wearing a black coat and scarf.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 519-255-6700 ext. 4211 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS).
