Desrochers confirmed Flynn was not on the job at the time of the incident and said the town will not be commenting, rather it will let the matter play out in court.
Flynn appeared in court last Thursday and is facing charges of hit and run and criminal negligence.
The collision happened around 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 29 at the intersection of 25th Avenue and Perrot Boulevard.
Quebec provincial police said the SUV, travelling east on Perrot Boulevard, struck a pedestrian, throwing him several metres.
Officers say the driver didn’t stop and kept heading south along 25th Avenue.
“A person’s responsibility, if you do hit something or someone, is to stop and give assistance to the person that’s injured and make sure they are OK,” explained SQ spokesperson Sgt. Daniel Thibodeau.
