Pedestrian dies after hit-and-run in Mississauga

A man has died after he was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Goreway and Morning Star drives in Mississauga.

Const. Thomas Ruttan said emergency crews were called to the scene around 6:30 p.m. Saturday where they located the victim lying in the street.

The vehicle did not remain on scene.

“It appears at this point that the vehicle was southbound on Goreway when he struck this male and took off in a southerly direction,” Ruttan said. “We are asking the driver of this vehicle to turn himself in before we have to come and find him.”

Paramedics say the elderly man was without vital signs and transported to hospital where he succumb to his injuries.

Const. Ruttan said they are looking for a white or silver Hyundai Genesis which may have sustained damage to the front end and windshield.

Police are canvassing the area for any video which may have caught footage of the incident and are also asking any witnesses to come forward.

The intersection has been closed while police investigate.
