Pedestrian injured in apparent Arthur hit and run

Police are looking for clues after a pedestrian was injured in an apparent hit and run here on Nov. 13.

At about 5:30pm Wellington County OPP officers and Wellington North firefighters responded to a report of a female pedestrian injured on George Street in Arthur.

“There was a collision involving a pedestrian and a motor vehicle,” OPP media relations officer Cheri Rockefeller said on Nov. 16.

A previous OPP media release stated, “A passing motorist (witness) observed the female standing in the middle of the road waiting for traffic … ( and then) looked in his rear view mirror and saw the female lying on the roadway.”

Police say a 64-year-old woman from Centre Wellington was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

On Nov. 16 OPP media relations officer Cheri Rockefeller said the woman was in stable condition “and being held for observation” at hospital.

She said police could only describe the suspect vehicle as “dark-coloured” and “mid-sized” as the “make and model” are unknown.

“The investigation is still ongoing at this time and OPP are still seeking witnesses,” said Rockefeller.

Police are asking any witnesses to contact them at 1-888-310-1122. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit a tip on-line at
