Hamilton police have released footage of a dramatic road incident from late November where the vehicle involved failed to remain at the scene. The video appears to show a minivan striking a 20-year-old woman at a Mountain crosswalk.
Investigators say the incident happened at the intersection of Stone Church Road East and Redmond Drive around 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 30.
In the surveillance video, the woman is hit by the van as it turned left onto Redmond Drive heading northbound.
The injured pedestrian was able to walk to a nearby residence for help and was eventually transported to hospital by paramedics.
“The injuries were not life-altering. The pedestrian was very lucky,” Const. Jerome Stewart told Global News.
Detectives say the suspect vehicle is a light-coloured minivan.
The incident is just two kilometres from Royalvista Drive and Upper Gage Avenue where 11-year-old Jude Strickland was hit and killed by a pickup truck on Dec. 1
