Police are looking for witnesses in a hit-and-run crash that happened in Mississauga, Ontario on Friday, May 3 at 4:50 p.m.
The incident was captured by a dashboard camera, and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have released the footage in the hopes someone can identify the vehicle—or that the driver will turn himself in.
The crash occurred on Highway 410 northbound approaching Derry Road. In the video, a vehicle driven by Chris Maxwell is in the HOV (high-occupancy vehicle) lane when another vehicle comes up behind it.
The driver of that vehicle swerved to the right, passed Maxwell and pulled in front. The driver then hit the brakes and swerved into Maxwell's car, resulting in it spinning 180 degrees and crashing into the barrier. The other car keeps going.
Who would do this? Help us identify the driver of the car that failed to remain on #Hwy410

Police have not been able to identify the vehicle, other than to say it's a compact black hatchback and will probably have damage on the rear driver's side.
Maxwell said he and his passenger were unhurt, but his car is a write-off. Anyone with information on the crash, the vehicle or the driver involved is asked to call the OPP Port Credit detachment at 905-278-6131.
