Driver sought in hit and run of pedestrian
A driver and several passengers are being sought by police after a pedestrian was run over earlier this month.
Around 2:40 a.m., on Monday, Nov. 2, 2020, a confrontation occurred between several individuals near a vehicle by the gas pumps of the Shell at 5919 Macleod Trail S.W. Four of the individuals got back into a silver Jeep Compass, while the victim walked away.

The Jeep fled the parking lot southbound on Macleod Trail. The victim was transported to hospital in stable condition.
Police would like to speak to the occupants of the vehicle and identify the driver. The driver is described as an Indigenous woman in her 30s, with a heavy build and brown hair. She was wearing a black hoodie, black leggings and black and white low-cut Converse shoes.
