2 women injured in hit-and-run on pedestrian street
Police arrest 22-year-old man in connection with incident
Montreal police have arrested a 22-year-old man in connection with a hit-and-run Saturday.
Police said the suspect drove into a pedestrian corridor in the city's downtown before fleeing the scene.
First responders were called to Ste-Catherine Street near the corner of Crescent Street at around 3 p.m. That portion of the street is currently closed to traffic to allow more space for pedestrians, but police said the man drove into the area nonetheless.
Two women in their 20s were taken to hospital with minor injuries to their lower bodies.
The man was arrested not long afterward, police said.
