Girl critically injured in hit-and-run

A seven-year-old girl was critically injured Tuesday morning in a hit‑and‑run in eastern Ville‑Marie. Police have not yet found the driver.

Update: The girl has died, I’m sorry to say. TVA says a man has turned himself in.

If anything could make this worse: the girl was the youngest of a Ukrainian refugee family.

Toula Drimonis and Piétons Québec’s Sandrine Cabana‑Degani both comment on the recent surge in pedestrian injuries and fatalities.
