Windsor Police are urging the driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run collision over the weekend to turn themselves over to authorities.

On November 18th 2022, at approximately 8pm, officers were called to the intersection of Elsmere Avenue and Ellis Street East following a report of a collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian. Through investigation, police officers learned the victim was near the intersection when he was struck by the vehicle. The victim, a 33-year-old man, has since died from his injuries.

Investigators have since obtained surveillance video of the suspect vehicle, which is believed to be a 2008-2010 Dodge Caravan, dark in colour, with heavy front-end damage and a missing car emblem. The front driver and passenger windows are not tinted.

Police are urging auto body shops and mechanics to contact authorities if they are asked to repair a minivan with similar descriptors.

Police are also hoping to speak with a witness who was in the area at the time of the collision. The witness, who was driving a blue SUV-type vehicle, travelled north on Elsmere Ave. and stopped for several minutes near the location of the incident.

Anyone with information should call the Major Crimes Unit at 519-255-6700, ext. 4830. They can also contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.catchcrooks.com
