Jonathan Black, the 30-year-old son of disgraced former media mogul Conrad Black, is being investigated over an alleged hit and run accident in Toronto, The Globe and Mail reported late Friday on its Web site.
The paper said the traffic accident, which injured a driver, happened late Thursday near Toronto’s financial district, the paper said, citing two unnamed police sources.
Reuters reported Toronto police confirmed they were investigating an accident, and had taken possession of a car. The police spokesman would not say whether it was a car driven by Black, the agency reported.
Conrad Black, who was convicted of federal fraud charges last summer for pocketing improper payments while running the parent company of the Chicago Sun-Times, began serving his 6 1/2-year prison sentence earlier this month.
