Fatal hit and run: Witness wanted in Montreal


Montreal police are looking for a possible witness to the fatal hit-and-run that occurred two weeks ago in the borough of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. 

On September 20, a pedestrian was hit in the evening on rue Hochelaga, near avenue De La Salle, by a driver driving a Mercedes which fled after the collision.< /p>

In order to move this file forward, the investigators want to speak to the driver of a white Mazda 3, model year between 2014 and 2018, which was seen in the vicinity at the time of the tragedy.

“He would have been traveling in the same lane in which a pedestrian was hit, and therefore may have seen the maneuvers of the driver of a dark-coloured Mercedes before he was involved in the collision with the pedestrian,” argued the Montreal Police Service.

Anyone who has information about this crime is invited to call 911 or the line e confidential Info-Crime at 514 393-1133.
