Police seek car sideswiped downtown Sunday morning

  • Print

Did your vehicle get sideswiped while you were driving downtown at 2:35 a.m. Sunday — but you just kept going? If so, the police want to talk to you.

A Ford Focus ran a red light at a high rate of speed near Main Street and McDermot Avenue early Sunday morning, police said Thursday, and in the process the Focus side-swiped the rear of an eastbound car.

The eastbound car kept going, "potentially unaware of the incident," police said in a release.

Officers stopped the Ford Focus near Notre Dame Avenue and Albert Street.

A 20-year-old man was arrested for failure to provide a breath sample, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, breach of probation, failure to remain at the scene of an accident and exchange particulars and driving while disqualified.

Police are looking for the eastbound car that was damaged, described as a small, newer-model black car with damage to the rear bumper.

Investigators asking its driver or occupants to contact police at 204-986-6271.
