Interview yields no arrests in hit-and-run death

Cops are still looking for the person responsibe for the hit-and-run crash that killed 22-year-old Dan Miller.

A woman described as a “person of interest” spoke to Ottawa Police Friday, but she later walked out of the Elgin St. station without being charged.

Her name was not released and charges were “not immediately pending,” said police.

Miller, originally from Stratford, was struck while crossing Bronson Ave. near Somerset St. W around 3:18 a.m. Wednesday and suffered serious injuries.

About five hours later, he died in hospital and the same day, tips came pouring in to police.

Cops say the woman is linked to the black Nissan Maxima ­— tracked down Thursday night — which is believed to be the car that hit Miller, but there “could be a wide variety of reasons” why she was released, police said Saturday.

Friday afternoon, the woman went to the collision investigation office at the police station on Greenbank Rd.

She was later taken to police headquarters on Elgin St. for an interview, during which her lawyer represented her via telephone.

Miller’s funeral is set for Tuesday in Stratford.

Anyone with information should call police at 613-236-1222 ext. 2481 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.
