Red Deer RCMP seek public’s assistance after fatal hit and run

  • Aug. 10, 2020 11:30 a.m.

A male pedestrian was fatally injured Sunday afternoon after being hit by a passing vehicle on Highway 2A north of Red Deer, near the railroad tracks, says Red Deer RCMP.

At approximately 3:40 p.m., a vehicle driving southbound on Highway 2A did not stop after hitting the pedestrian.

STARS air ambulance took the 31-year-old male to hospital in Calgary, where he later died from his injuries.

Red Deer RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance to locate the suspect vehicle and driver.

The vehicle is described as a black or dark blue 2003 to 2006 1/4-ton GMC/Chevrolet truck with a canopy.

The truck was hauling a flat-deck trailer with a blue sport bike motorcycle on it.

The vehicle was last seen heading west on Range Road 391 towards C&E Trail.

If you witnessed the incident, know the suspect vehicle, or know the driver involved, contact Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.
