Hit and run with trolley captured on video in Montreal

Police say a one-year-old child survived a hit-and-run crash after his mother’s stroller was hit by a vehicle while she was crossing the street in Montréal’s Outremont district last week.

The incident was captured on surveillance cameras outside the home of a resident who lives near the crash site, at the intersection of Bloomfield and Lajoie Avenues. The video was posted online leaving community members shocked by the incident and hoping police would find the driver.

The video shows the driver slowly approaching the intersection but instead of stopping at the stop sign, the vehicle continues to drive away, pushing the trolley into the roadway. The person pushing the stroller did not appear to have been hit by the cart.

The owner of the video confirmed to CTV News that the video was filmed on the afternoon of November 16.

Paramedics and Montreal police said they received a 911 call around 2:40 p.m. and were at the scene of the crash. When police arrived, the mother and child were taken to the hospital as a precaution. The infant was not injured.

Jeanne Drouin, a police spokeswoman, said investigators returned shortly after and spoke to witnesses.

“Like all of you, I am shocked after watching this video,” Outremont Mayor Laurent Desbois wrote in a tweet Tuesday night. “I am in contact with SPVM and I hope that they will be able to quickly identify the driver of the vehicle.”

Police said the suspect’s vehicle was black but did not have any other description.

The police investigation is still ongoing.
