Police have released surveillance camera images of a suspect vehicle in a hit-and-run in Scarborough that left a woman with life-threatening injuries earlier this week.

According to police, the 24-year-old woman was in a crosswalk on Danforth Road when she was hit by a minivan that had turned onto the street from northbound Kennedy Road.

In a news release issued on Friday morning, police said that they are continuing to appeal to any local residents, businesses and drivers with security or dash-camera footage of the incident to come forward.

Toronto police on Friday published images of the "suspect vehicle" involved in a hit-and-run collision in the east end earlier this week. 

Investigators hope the public may be able to help identify who was behind the wheel of the "dark-coloured minivan or similar vehicle" on Wednesday.

At around 7:50 p.m. that evening, a driver struck a 24-year-old woman in the crosswalk on Danforth Road at Kennedy Road. The woman was then dragged for a short distance before the driver fled the scene. 

"Police continue to ask local residents, businesses, and drivers, who may have security or dash-camera footage of the area or incident, to contact investigators," a news release said. 

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.
