It’s been two weeks since a hit-and-run incident killed a mother of five on the Sunchild First Nation.
Rocky Mountain House RCMP continue to investigate and are looking for anyone who may have seen or heard anything.
Debbie Bird, 39, was struck by a motor vehicle at approximately 3 a.m. May 17 while walking on Sunchild Road.
Emergency Medical Services and the Rocky Mountain House RCMP found the woman dead. The vehicle had fled.
Because the hit and run happened in the middle of the night, it’s harder to investigate the case.
“Our resources are limited given the time of day, so that becomes an issue,” said Const. Matthew Pepper.
RCMP do not believe the woman was targeted.
“It’s an isolated incident. I don’t believe that somebody is driving around causing these occurrences maliciously. It’s an accident that was handled poorly at the end of the day.”
Police encourage people to call the Rocky Mountain House RCMP with any tips at 403-845-2882.
