Hit and run puts one person in hospital


Two people were reportedly shaken up, and one injured on the evening of May 29 when one motor vehicle struck another in the parking lot of Food Basics in Kemptville. A witness to the accident posted on social media that a pickup truck hit the driver’s side door of a car that was occupied by two “very tiny women”. The witness also reported that one of the women sustained “serious leg injuries”, though this information is not corroborated by details obtained from the Ontario Provincial Police. 

Const. Ann Collins of the OPP told the Times: “Officers were dispatched to a motor vehicle collision at a supermarket parking lot in Kemptville. It was advised that the victim was hit by another vehicle and that the other driver fled the scene. The driver sustained minor injuries.”

No license plate number was obtained for the truck involved in the collision, but witnesses were able to provide a description of both the truck and the driver. 

Const. Collins confirmed that a witness provided the following descriptions: The vehicle is “a newer model pickup truck with four doors, midnight blue.” The suspect was “a white male, very tall, thin, with a beard, wearing blue t-shirt and dark pants.”

Neither the witnesses to the incident nor the victims were able to be reached for comment. The OPP investigation into the incident is ongoing. Anyone with information should contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-(TIPS) 8477 or www.ontariocrimestoppers.ca. Crime Stoppers does not want your name, you don’t go to court, and you could earn a cash reward.
