The Ottawa police are looking for witnesses after they say a 17-year-old was struck in a suspected hit and run on New Year’s Eve.
The collision investigations unit is looking into an incident on Lorry Greenberg Drive near Bamblegrove Crescent that occurred at roughly 10:10 p.m. on Dec. 31.
Police say a 17-year-old male was walking on the sidewalk when a car drove onto the sidewalk, striking him from behind and leaving the teen with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The vehicle then fled from the scene, police say.
Investigators are hoping dash-cam footage of the collision might exist.
