Police seek witnesses and dash cam footage in a hit-and-run collision that claimed the life of a Brampton teen.

A 19-year-old Brampton woman was hit at the intersection of Tomken Road and Britannia Road around 5:30 a.m. on Oct. 13 in Mississauga, Peel Regional Police said in a press release on Oct. 21.

“The victim was walking within the crosswalk towards a bus stop when she was struck by a vehicle,” police said.
