A man driving a car which crashed into a tractor trailer in Clarkson early Friday fled the scene on foot, say police.
The incident took place at 1:10 a.m. at Southdown Rd. and Royal Windsor Dr.
“The vehicle collided with the driver side of the tractor trailer,” said Peel Regional Police Const. Rachel Gibbs.
The trucker has minor injuries. Paramedics treated him before taking him to hospital as a safeguard.
Firefighters were on scene to clear the intersection.
Police seized the vehicle and had it towed. They’re still searching for the suspect: a white man in his early to mid twenties. The man has short, dark hair and was wearing a black jacket.
