South Simcoe Police Service officers are urging two hit-and-run drivers to do the right thing and surrender to police.

On Friday, Jan. 22, 2021, at 7:00 p.m., a 65-year-old Bradford woman was struck by two vehicles while she was crossing West Park Avenue on Holland Street West in Bradford.  

The first suspect vehicle fled the scene at a high rate of speed running several red lights as it travelled eastbound on Holland Street West. The second suspect vehicle fled the scene southbound on West Park Avenue.

The victim remains in serious condition at a Toronto trauma centre. For her sake, out of consideration for her family and the community, police are urging the drivers to come forward.

 The investigation has determined that both drivers know they struck someone, and officers are urging them to contact a lawyer and then contact police.

The investigation is ongoing and includes an extensive canvass for security camera video, witness interviews and collision reconstruction.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Sgt. Kai Johnson at 905-775-311, 705-436-2141, ext. # 1040, kai.johnson@southsimcoepolice.ca or contact Crime Stoppers.
