Man facing impaired driving charge in alleged hit-and-run in Alliston
TORONTO – A 32-year-old man is facing impaired driving charges in connection with a hit-and-run that sent two road crew workers to hospital early Friday morning in Alliston, Ont.
OPP Sgt. Peter Leon says a man and woman were painting lines on a road when they were hit just before 3 a.m.
Police say the man – who is also a volunteer firefighter – was taken by air ambulance to a Toronto hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The man died in hospital Friday afternoon.
The woman, whose injuries were considered not serious, was taken to a local hospital.
Police found a pick-up truck they believe was involved in the incident.
“One man was located a short time later and taken into custody,” said Sgt. Leon.
Victoria Street in Alliston, located an hour north of Toronto, will remain closed during the police investigation.
