Greater Sudbury Police arrested and charged a 19-year-old Sudbury man on Sept. 7 after investigating a pair of hit and run motor vehicle collisions.

On Wednesday, Sept. 6 at around 8 a.m. officers attended the area of Elm Street and Regent Street in relation to an abandoned vehicle that was involved in two separate collisions. 

In the first collision, a silver sedan struck an SUV on Elm Street at Eyre Street where the driver drove off. The silver sedan was then involved in a second collision involving a construction worker on Ernest Street at Ethelbert Street. 

The silver sedan struck the construction worker, who sustained minor injuries, and the driver proceeded to leave the scene for a second time in the vehicle.

The driver and two passengers of the silver sedan abandoned the vehicle a short distance away on Regent Street and the three individuals took off on foot. 

Through the investigation of these related collisions, the driver was believed to be a 19-year-old man from Greater Sudbury. It was also discovered that the silver sedan involved in both collisions had been stolen from a residence the night before.

On Thursday, Sept. 7, at around 6:30 p.m. members of the Integrated Crime Team located the man believed to be responsible for the incidents, in the area of Kathleen Street and Melvin Avenue. 

A detective identified himself to the suspect and the man fled from the officer, leading to a foot pursuit through the area. A second detective arrived on scene and the two officers were able to arrest the 19-year-old man. 

Upon searching the man, officers found he was also in possession of a controlled substance.

The 19-year old man from Greater Sudbury is being charged with the following offences under the Criminal Code of Canada:

  • Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle x2
  • Failure to Stop at the Scene of an Accident x2
  • Theft of Motor Vehicle
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime
  • Weapons Dangerous
  • Assault with a Weapon
  • Resist Arrest
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Breach of Probation x19

The man was scheduled to appear in bail court on Friday, Sept. 8.
