Kingston police are hoping someone in the public has a keen eye in identifying a vehicle involved in a dangerous driving incident.

Police say the incident happened on Jan. 6 at approximately 5:30 p.m. when a grey or blue four-door sedan intentionally drove towards two pedestrians while driving near the intersection of Van Order Drive and Norman Rogers Drive.

Police believe that because of the ethnicity of the pedestrians, this could have been a “hate-motivated crime” and not a case of driver error.

“We want to treat this seriously, and we also understand, too, that based upon the ethnicities of the two pedestrians and how that interaction went down is that they feel that there might be a potential hate crime,” Const. Steve Koopman said.

“We have Highway Traffic Act offenses as well, such as careless driving or if it was an improper turn,” he added.

Police say the car’s licence plate could have read something similar to “BMEA 910.”

They add the driver is a man between the ages of 40 and 60 years old, who may have been wearing a hat and was clean-shaven.
