Innisfail RCMP seeking hit and run suspects

Two male suspects on the run after a pair of hit and runs on Monday in Penhold

Innisfail RCMP are searching for two suspects from a pair of hit and run incidents that left some people with minor injuries Monday.

Police said the first incident happened around 1:45 p.m. Two vehicles on a Penhold residential street were hit and damaged.

“Pieces of the suspect vehicle were left behind at the scene,” said police.

Later, patrolling police spotted a Dodge Ram truck with damage that matched the evidence found at the collision scene.

“RCMP attempted to stop the Dodge Ram, however, it refused to stop for police, and due to the driving pattern of the vehicle and safety concerns, the RCMP did not continue to pursue the vehicle.

“Police continued patrols of the area, however, and arrived at the location of another collision in Penhold involving the Dodge truck that was observed earlier and another vehicle, a Ford Flex.”

The occupants of the Ford Flex suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene by ambulance responders.

The male suspects in the Dodge Ram fled on foot.

Officers from a number of agencies joined forces to search the area, but came up empty.

Further investigation showed the suspects took off in a silver Dodge Caravan.

The first suspect is described as Caucasian and wearing blue coveralls and a baseball hat.

The second suspect is in his early 20s with a thin build. He was wearing a black baseball hat, black hoodie with white lettering up the left sleeve and black pants.
