A motorist reportedly hit a pedestrian, inflicting very serious injuries, before fleeing, late Friday morning, in the borough of Lachine, in Montreal.
The events took place shortly before lunchtime, in the parking lot of a business on Saint-Pierre Avenue, near Saint-Jacques Street.
For a reason still unknown, a driver would have hit a pedestrian, nearly mowing down a second, before continuing on his way.
According to our information, the motorist may have deliberately driven into the injured pedestrian.
The latter, a man in his 40s, was taken to hospital in critical condition. Doctors fear for his life.
The perpetrator of the hit-and-run would then have abandoned his small, heavily damaged black car a kilometer away, on the edge of Avon Road. He would then have disappeared into the wild and the police were still looking for him in the middle of the afternoon.
