A young Indian lost her life due to a hit-and-run accident at 5.30 am at Britannia Road and Tomken Road, in the city of Mississauga, Canada.
The untimely death happened when the deceased Navneet Billing was struck by a motor vehicle when she was crossing Tomken Road.
The vehicle did not stop and the driver drove away from the spot. The local police got the news and immediately shifted Navneet to a trauma care center, where she was pronounced dead. Navneet Billing had moved to Canada to complete her studies and was waiting for her work permit.
The youngster was much loved by her family and friends all of whom are shocked at her sudden demise.
