Kingston Police Searching for Vehicle that Fled Life-Threatening Collision with Pedestrian
Kingston Police is investigating a serious hit-and-run collision involving a sports utility vehicle and a pedestrian that has left a 41-year-old woman with critical life-threatening injuries.
At 7:20 p.m. on Thursday, December 8, 2016, emergency responders were dispatched to the area of Princess Street just west of Midland Avenue where the female pedestrian was located. She was transported to a local hospital and was currently receiving intensive medical care.
In addition to uniform patrol, multiple Traffic Unit collision re-constructionists are on scene and collecting evidence. The suspect vehicle is believed to be a gray or silver General Motors (GM) style sports utility vehicle (SUV). It was travelling eastbound on Princess Street approaching Midland Avenue when it struck the female pedestrian. The driver failed to render assistance and fled the scene.
Initial information has resulted in video surveillance imagery from the McDonald’s restaurant located on the northwest corner of Princess Street and Midland Avenue showing the suspect SUV that fled from the collision. Evidence suggests it should have extensive damage to its front grill and headlight assembly. It is believed the SUV entered and drove through the McDonald’s parking lot, fleeing north on Midland Avenue.
Princess Street is currently closed in both direction from Midland Avenue, with the collision scene established west to approximately the Leon’s Furniture store. There is no throughway traffic allowed on Princess Street from Bayridge Drive to the west and Midland Avenue to the east. The road is anticipated to be closed for a number of hours but should be re-opened in time for Friday morning commuter traffic.
Witnesses or anyone with time-sensitive information regarding the suspect vehicle or driver is please asked to call Kingston Police immediately at 613-549-4660. Non-emergent information can be directed to the investigating officer, Sergeant Darren Keuhl, at 613-549-4660 ext 6148 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
