Quebec police find vehicle believed to have been used in fatal hit-and-run

·1 min read

MONTREAL — Quebec provincial police say they believe they've located the vehicle that was used in a hit-and-run that killed a teenager north of Montreal this week.

They say a pick up truck was located early this morning in a parking lot in Saint-Lin-Laurentides, about 60 kilometres north of Montreal.

The vehicle's description corresponds to one that was sought in connection with an incident that occurred Wednesday night in that community.

Police allege a 16-year-old pedestrian was struck and killed while walking by the side of route 335 by a driver who did not stop to help.

Provincial investigators released surveillance video of the suspect vehicle on Friday, as well as a second video showing two pedestrians walking a dog who officers hoped to contact.

Police say they've managed to locate and interview the potential witnesses, but are still searching for the vehicle's driver and have yet to make an arrest.
