The traffic control worker seriously injured last week in a hit-and-run at a roadwork site in Montreal’s east end has died.

Montreal police say the 39-year-old man died on Monday.

He was sent to hospital in critical condition after a vehicle drove into the roadwork site near the intersection of Industriel and Saint-Jean-Baptiste boulevards at around 10:20 p.m. on July 12.

The driver who allegedly caused the fatal collision surrendered to authorities later that week. A second worker, also a 39-year-old man, suffered minor injuries.

Montreal police say their investigation is ongoing.
