Laval police say the man found dead on a road in Laval last week was the victim of a hit and run.
Const. Evelyne Boudreau say police are trying to find the driver involved in the incident that occurred overnight Wednesday on Marcel-Villeneuve Avenue.
They were called to the scene shortly after 2 a.m., after another man reported that he had run over the body.
Investigators now believe the man who died was initially hit by a different vehicle that fled the scene.
Boudreau says police don't have a full description of the vehicle involved, but that it would have sustained damage to its front.
She says some other drivers saw the 38-year-old victim walking on the side of the road in the dark before he was struck.
