Sarnia Police are looking for a man in his 60’s who may have seen the accident which killed a St. Thomas woman in the Tim Horton’s parking lot.

Early March 6, a woman stepped out of the transport driven by her common-law-husband and was somehow hit by the truck. Police don’t know exactly what happen but say it doesn’t appear she slipped and fell. Sarnia Police Media Relations Officer Const. Heather Emmons also says there is “absolutely” nothing suspicious about the incident.

The Ministry of Transportation experts examined the truck and found no mechanical problems which could have lead to the collision.

Officers continue to investigate, checking surveillance video from the parking lots and searching for witnesses. Police believe there may have been one person who was in the Tim Horton’s who saw the accident happen.

Police decribe the man as white, about 5′ 10″ medium to heavy build and about 60 years old. He has short gray hair and was wearing glasses. That Monday morning at 6 am in the London Line Tim Horton’s he was wearing a black coat with leather sleeves with a cloth body, similar to a team jacket but it had no visible markings. The man, who was also wearing jeans, left through the west doors.

The Traffic Branch investigator would like to speak to this man.  Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 519-344-8861, extension 6127.
