The Lennox and Addington County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is requesting the public’s help to identify the victim of a fatal collision in the Belleville area, according to a release from the OPP.

As Kingstonist reported earlier this week, OPP officers responded to reports of a pedestrian walking on the Highway 401 eastbound lanes near Highway 37 on Sunday Aug. 16, 2020. Around 10:30 p.m. that same evening officers received a report of a pedestrian struck by an eastbound transport truck. The male was pronounced deceased at the scene, OPP say.

The male was not carrying any identification and investigators have not been able to determine his identity. OPP suggest it is possible the individual was transient and had been traveling through the area.

A sketch of the deceased, created by the OPP Forensic Art Unit, is displayed above. 

The deceased is described as:

  • Approximately 178-cms (5’10”)
  • 60-kgs (132 lbs)
  • Short dark hair
  • Triangle tattoo on the inner right forearm

If anyone has information on this man’s identity, or can help the OPP contact his family, please call the Lennox & Addington County OPP Crime Unit at 1-888-310-1122. For those wishing to remain anonymous, tips can be submitted through ontariocrimestoppers.ca.
