Pedestrians injured by hit-and-run driver

Ontario police say they are looking for a pickup truck that was involved in a hit-and-run crash in Markham on Apr. 22. Two pedestrians, a 45-year-old woman and a 44-year-old man, were injured; the woman suffered serious injuries while the man received mild injuries. The woman remains in the hospital for treatment for her injuries, which were described as "life-threatening." The collision in Markham took place near the corner of Yonge Street and Meadowview Avenue. While the precise time of the crash has not been pinpointed, police were summoned to the scene at 8:25 p.m.

Police said that there were a number of witnesses to the motor vehicle collision. Some witnesses called 911 while others ran into the road to help the wounded pedestrians. Video surveillance footage from nearby cameras also captured the collision and footage of the white pickup truck responsible. Both the man and the woman were in the crosswalk crossing the street when the truck ran into them before pulling away. Police publicly released the footage of the accident although they blurred the images of the pedestrians.

The 20-second video shows the truck pulling into the intersection, hitting the pedestrians and driving away without stopping. Police described the truck, saying that it has a bar of lights atop the cab and a rear dual axle, but they said the specific make and model of the vehicle had not been identified.

Pedestrian accidents can be particularly dangerous or even deadly when larger vehicles crash into unprotected people attempting to cross the street. Drivers responsible for harming pedestrians may be held responsible in court. People who have been injured in a car crash caused by someone else's negligence may want to consult with a personal injury lawyer about the potential to seek compensation for medical expenses and other damages.
