Peel police shooting in Brampton

A hit-and-run driver in Mississauga who sent a man to hospital with life-threatening injuries is being sought by Peel Regional Police.

Investigators with the force’s Major Collision Bureau are also appealing for any witnesses to the Aug. 18 incident in west Mississauga to contact them. Police are also interested in any video footage of the hit-and-run.

According to police, a 58-year-old man was struck by a car as he crossed Dundas Street West mid-block just east of The Credit Woodlands at about 11 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 18.

The vehicle then fled the scene after striking the victim, who remains in hospital, police say.

Police describe the vehicle as a dark-coloured, four-door sedan that will have had visible damage to the windshield, driver’s side front fender and driver’s side front wheel well cover (over the tire).

The section of Dundas Street West where the man was struck is also near Westdale Mall and Old Carriage Rd.

Investigators are urging anyone who may have witnessed the collision, have dash cam footage or have any other information on the suspect or vehicle to call them at 905-453–2121, ext. 3710, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

In addition, police would like to speak with anyone from a vehicle repair centre who has information on the suspect or vehicle.
