Man found dead on Laval road was victim of hit and run, police say
Police search for driver, but don't have full description of vehicle involved
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.
