Kingston police are investigating a two-vehicle collision on Montreal Street, and one of the drivers allegedly fled the scene.

James Whan, a witness to the collision, said he was crossing Montreal Street at Bay Street when he saw a Jeep coming up Bay Street. That Jeep allegedly did not stop for a sedan and “took out” the smaller vehicle, according to Whan.

After the sedan was struck, it crashed into a nearby building. Firefighters on scene say the passengers in the sedan received minor injuries.

After that, Whan says the woman driving the Jeep got out of her vehicle and ran.

Whan says the people in the sedan looked shook up, and apparently lost their dog during the collision because it ran away frightened. The dog was later recovered unharmed.

Another witness, Micheal Schonauer, said he was driving down Montreal Street when he saw the Jeep driving about 60 km/h down Bay. He, too claims the Jeep didn’t stop at the stop sign, and then struck the sedan.
