Police hoping to track down motorist that left the scene of fatal collision in Oshawa

Investigators with the DRPS are still looking to track down a motorist that left the scene of a fatal collision with a cyclist in Oshawa last month.

Police have released a description of the suspect vehicle that hit and killed 36-year-old Christye Tingey of Oshawa as she was riding a bicycle across Stevenson Road at Laval Drive on Nov. 22.

“Police have identified the suspect vehicle as a light-coloured, possibly a silver SUV. The suspect vehicle will have a broken headlight, and possible damage to the driver’s side,” reads a media release from police.

“At the time of the collision, the vehicle had a dark-coloured plastic stone-chip or bug deflector attached to the hood. The deflector was smashed as a result of the impact. The vehicle may have further damage to the hood. It is possible that the remaining section of the deflector has since been removed by the driver.”

Police believe that the suspect vehicle entered onto the 401 westbound towards Toronto and are requesting help from the public to help identify the driver.

“If you are a neighbor or acquaintance and know of such a vehicle, or perhaps haven’t seen a similar vehicle since the date of the collision, please contact Durham Regional Police Service,” the media release reads.

“Further, Police are appealing to the driver of the SUV to seek legal counsel and contact the DRPS.”

Anyone with information about this incident or witnessed this collision is asked to call 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5217.

Anonymous information can be sent to Durham Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
