Waterloo Region, Ontario – The Waterloo Regional Police Service is continuing to investigate a fatal hit-and-run that occurred in Cambridge on November 26, 2016. Joseph Robert Paul Lalonde, 49, (known as Paul Lalonde) from Cambridge, was walking southbound across Cedar Street when he was struck by a full-sized, white Ford pickup truck.
He then came in contact with another vehicle traveling east along Cedar Street and in the left turn lane attempting to enter the Westgate Plaza, located at 130 Cedar Street. The white Ford pickup truck failed to remain and was last observed traveling west along Cedar Street.
Because the vehicle had damage to the driver’s side headlights and mirror, it’s possible the driver took the truck to a garage for repairs. Any shop owners who may have repaired a vehicle of this description are also asked to call police.
The vehicle is described as a white 1999 to 2001 Ford F-350 pickup truck with dual rear wheels and a raised cap, although the cap may now be removed. The truck had a bank of marker lights on the roof above the windshield and two marker lights on both sides of the truck, in front and behind the rear wheels.
Anyone with information can call Waterloo Regional Police Services Major Crime Unit at 519-653-7700 ext. 8666 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
