The Longueuil Agglomeration Police Department (SPAL) arrested a 32-year-old man following a fatal hit-and-run incident on June 24 in Brossard.
A Greenfield Park resident was arrested Thursday by police who consider him a suspect in a hit-and-run incident on the night of June 24 in Brossard that claimed the life of a 25-year-old young woman.
The Longueuil Agglomeration Police Service (SPAL) says the 32-year-old man, who lives in Greenfield Park, has been remanded in custody pending his court appearance this Friday at the Palais of Justice of Longueuil.
The SPAL reports that it could face charges of failing to stop following an accident fatal, dangerous driving causing death, public mischief and attempted fraud.
The hit and run occurred around 4:20 a.m. 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 the suspect van to be quickly located in Greenfield Park; it was then seized in order to find clues to capture the person responsible for the crime.
