Red Deer RCMP are looking for the driver of a dark coloured pickup truck after a hit and run in north Red Deer on Monday night that sent one person to hospital.

The truck ran down a pedestrian in the parking lot of Wild Bill’s pub at 5150 50th Ave. at around 10:20 p.m.

A male victim suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Calgary Foothills hospital via ground ambulance.

The victim reported to police that the truck did not slow down before striking him.

The victim’s sister, Pam Innes, said her 45-year-old brother has fractures in his back, a tear in his aorta, “a lot of road rash” and all his ribs are broken.

There was no video surveillance in the parking lot and no debris to help identify the hit and run vehicle, RCMP said.

The truck is believed to be an early 1990s model, single cab truck, either black or dark in colour. It possibly had two people inside.

Anyone with more information is asked to call Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to remain anonymous or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
