A Red Deer man has been charged in the fatal hit and run on Taylor Bridge early Saturday.

At about 2:05 a.m., an 18-year-old man was struck by a westbound vehicle and pronounced dead on the scene.

A relative told the Advocate the victim was Paul Gabriel Bertin of Botha.

Bertin recently moved to Red Deer and was living with two of his five brothers. He had just started working in a fencing business with them.

The driver did not remain on the scene but later on Saturday police located the vehicle suspected to be involved in the collision.

Brent Robert Cameron, 24, was charged with failing to stop and render assistance at the scene of a collision and public mischief.

Cameron was remanded into custody and appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday.

He remains in custody and returns to court on Friday.

The police investigation revealed there was a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the collision. RCMP are urging the passenger to immediately contact the lead investigator Cpl. Slavica Doktor at 403-406-2219.
