I can't think of anything more terrifying than being hit by a car while walking, and I can't imagine how terrible it must feel to be the driver behind the wheel.
But I have no sympathy for the driver in the video below, who seems to not care at all that they've struck a pedestrian.
In fact, it seems they don't even slow down.
TL;DR Quebec Police are on the hunt for the person seen driving the vehicle in the video below, which clearly shows a hit-and-run of a pedestrian.
This video was provided to MTLBlog by Sûreté du Québec.
The hit and run took place on Tuesday in the Montérégie region of Quebec.
At around 5:30 PM, a man in his forties was struck by a dark-coloured SUV while he was crossing the street on 25th Ave at Perrot Boulevard.
Police are asking for witnesses or anyone that thinks they could identify the owner of the vehicle, which looks like it could be a black Jeep Patriot.
L’aquaplanage survient lorsqu’au moins une roue perd de l’adhérence. La présence d’eau sur la chaussée en est la principale cause et peut entraîner la perte de maîtrise du véhicule.

The pedestrian suffered minor injuries but should be okay, despite seemingly being thrown in the air from the impact of the vehicle.
