Windsor police are seeking the driver of a sedan that hit a group of pedestrians before speeding off from the scene.
On June 25, at the intersection of Wyandotte and Goyeau streets around 2:30 a.m., a four-door Mazda sedan was involved in an accident with two pedestrians. The vehicle was headed east on Wyandotte Street, and according to witnesses, it veered into the westbound lanes and hit two men. The vehicle sped away and headed east on Wyandotte Street instead of stopping at the scene of the crash.
The group of pedestrians were walking north on Goyeau Street and crossing Wyandotte Street at the time of the crash.
A 20-year-old-man was treated at a local hospital for serious injuries while another 20-year-old victim was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
Police believe the vehicle involved might have some damage on the front-end as a result of the accident.
The number of pedestrians injured and killed in automotive accidents in Ontario has slowly decreased over the years. Still, these types of accidents are incredibly dangerous as pedestrians have zero protection from the force of a moving vehicle.
Victims of these types of accidents often suffer from broken bones, cuts and abrasions. Although the victims of this hit-and-run accident suffered minor injuries, many others are not so lucky.
Failing to remain at the scene of an accident can result in traffic fines, demerit points and jail time if the collision led to serious injuries.
Anyone with information about this hit-and-run accident should call Windsor police at 519-255-6700.
