Moose Creek resident Christopher Coleman was walking home last year on Christmas Eve when he was struck by a passing vehicle. The incident took place at around 4 a.m., on Dyer Road, near Maxville. The vehicle never stopped after hitting Coleman, who was left injured in the cold by the side of the road.
Police say Coleman, who is still recovering from his injuries, is lucky to be alive.
A passerby discovered Coleman, who was transported to hospital and treated for what Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) referred to as life-threatening injuries. Almost one year later, police from the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry detachment of the OPP are still trying to solve the crime.
“It’s still an ongoing investigation. We have exhausted some of our leads, but we encourage the public to come forward with any information they may have,” said OPP Constable Joel Doiron.
Anyone with information relating to this incident is urged to call the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry OPP at 613.534.2223. You can also contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1.800.222.8477
