Montreal Police looking for one of Two Ontario drivers street racing in Montreal

Police are looking for the driver of the orange car in the photo below

"A 24-year-old man lies in critical condition after the vehicle participating in a race in which he was a passenger struck a tree overnight from Sunday to Monday, in the district of Villeray – Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension, to Montreal.


“Around 2:45 am, according to local witnesses, two vehicles were racing south on Acadie Boulevard,” said the spokesperson for the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), Jean-Pierre Brabant. One of them, a BMW, near Jean-Talon Street, hits a tree and immediately catches fire. The two passengers were able to get out just in time and the fire was quickly brought under control by the firefighters.

The driver, a 20-year-old man, comes off with minor injuries. Although the 24-year-old passenger is in critical condition, there is no fear for his life. The driver will be questioned by the police.

The other vehicle participating in the race has been located, but the driver is still wanted by the SPVM. Jean Talon Street is closed between Birnam and Markham Road. As for Boulevard de l'Acadie, it is closed from Avenue Ogilvy. Police officers are present to redirect the traffic."

Too bad the driver wasn't the one critically injured.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Yeah but this is always the case. Whether it's "street racer" with passenger, drunk driver with passenger(s), it's never the driver that gets killed, it's always other ppl--from other people in their vehicle, to other people in other vehicles, to pedestrians not even in a vehicle; offending driver is always just fine lol. That's just the way it is.

So not really a surprise. What is a surprise is that SRT there or whatever seems perfectly fine and it's the BMW which looks like it has xDrive that's into the tree lol. Love how the trunk lid is randomly mangled there--doesn't look like the rear end hit anything so I'm guessing that's how police opened the trunk--possibly thinking some kind of contraband was inside perhaps? Or I guess trunk could have became like that from the rear end impacting something sideways--I guess maybe he hit a couple trees, just bouncing off.

The police got the car, plate # and vin number. How can they not able to find the driver/owner?

Makes me believe the police would not do anything which involves a bit of leg work.
