Woman, 36, dead after alleged hit-and-run collision in Oshawa, Ont.

OSHAWA, Ont. – Police east of Toronto are investigating an alleged hit and run that left a cyclist dead early Friday.

Durham Regional Police say a passing driver spotted the woman on the ground near an intersection in Oshawa, Ont., with her badly damaged bicycle nearby.

They say many vehicles simply drove around the victim until one driver finally stopped and called police.

Investigators have identified the victim as a 36-year-old woman, but are keeping her name private at her family’s request.

They say that as of 3 p.m. Friday – roughly 11 hours after the crash – no witnesses had come forward.

Police have not provided a suspect description, but they say a portion of a headlight and a shattered piece of a bug deflector were left at the scene of the crash.
