Irshadgul News report,
Police say a one-year-old survived a hit-and-run after a mother’s stroller was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street in the Outremont borough of Montreal last week.
The incident was captured by a surveillance camera outside the home of a resident who lived near the crash site at the intersection of Bloomfield and Lajoie Avenues. The video was posted online as community members are shocked by the incident and are hoping that the driver will be found by the police.
The video shows the driver slowly approaching the intersection, but instead of stopping at a stop sign, the vehicle continues driving, pushing the stroller into the road. The person pushing the stroller does not appear to have been struck by the vehicle.
The homeowner who recorded the video confirmed to CTV News that it was recorded on the afternoon of November 16.
Paramedics and Montreal police said they received a 911 call around 2:40 p.m. and responded to the scene of the accident. When police officers arrived, the mother and child had already been sent to the hospital as a precaution. The baby was deserted.
A police spokesman, Jean Drouin, said investigators soon returned and spoke with witnesses.
“Like all of you, I am in shock after watching this video,” wrote Outremont Mayor Laurent Desbois in a tweet late Tuesday. “I am in touch with the SPVM and I am hopeful that they will be able to identify the driver of the vehicle very quickly.”
Police said the suspect vehicle was black but had no other description.
Police investigation is still going on.
