Original story:

Greater Sudbury Police are asking for the public’s assistance to locate a woman involved in a hit-and-run incident involving a stolen vehicle.

Police say that just before 5:40 p.m. June 17, a community member attended a restaurant on Regent Street.

While inside picking up her order, she saw an unknown woman getting into her vehicle, a 2008 four-door, dark grey Honda Accord, that was running in the parking lot.

The woman ran outside in an attempt to stop the woman from driving away in the vehicle. 

The community member grabbed the driver’s side mirror as the woman quickly reversed the vehicle causing the mirror to fall off. 

The woman then put the vehicle into drive and proceeded to run over the community member before continuing on Regent Street towards the Four Corners.

The 35-year-old community member sustained serious injuries as a result of the incident and remains in hospital in serious but stable condition.

The woman responsible for the incident (images attached) is described as being white, around 5-4 tall, with a thin build and dark brown hair that was in a ponytail at the time of the incident. The woman was last seen wearing a white sweater, black pants with white markings, a black hat and black and white running shoes.

The vehicle (similar vehicle image attached), a 2008 four-door, dark grey Honda Accord with Ontario licence plate CEVE 349, has not been located. The vehicle will be missing the driver’s side mirror.

Anyone with information related to the incident, the identity of the woman responsible for the incident or the location of the stolen vehicle is asked to contact Greater Sudbury Police at 705-675-9171 or Crime Stoppers at 705-222-8477.
