Montreal police say they’re looking for a rogue driver who drove through a pedestrian-only zone today on Ste-Catherine Street in downtown Montreal, injuring two people.

Const. Raphael Bergeron says the incident occurred just before 3 p.m. when a car smashed through a terrace at the corner of Crescent and Ste-Catherine Streets.

Bergeron says two women were taken to hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

Police say they’re looking at surveillance video and speaking to witnesses to get a better description of the vehicle.

The suspect vehicle continued along Ste-Catherine Street before driving away.

Bergeron says the investigation is ongoing.
