Jose Luis Raymond, a 32-year-old man, appeared Friday afternoon at the Longueuil courthouse.
A Montérégie resident was arrested Thursday by police who consider him a suspect in the hit and run incident that occurred on the night of June 24 in Brossard, which claimed the life of a 25-year-old young woman.
< p class="e-p">The Longueuil Agglomeration Police Service (SPAL) specifies that Jose Luis Raymond, 32, who lives in Greenfield Park, appeared Friday afternoon at the Longueuil courthouse.
For now, the Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions (DPCP) has brought two charges against him, one for failing to stop following a fatal accident and x27;other for dangerous driving causing death.
He will remain in custody until his next court appearance scheduled for July 11.
The hit and run occurred around 4:20 a.m. on June 25 at the intersection of Boulevard de Rome and Rue Lautrec. Police were able to determine that the driver of a black Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck struck a woman crossing the street.
Rather than to stop to help the victim, the suspect fled in the direction of Taschereau Boulevard in his recent model vehicle.
The police investigation has then allowed to quickly locate the suspicious van in Greenfield Park. After being seized, it was searched to try to find clues that would allow the capture of the person responsible for the crime.
