Calgary, AB,

Police asking for help to identify vehicle in hit and run

The Calgary Police Service is asking for the public’s help to identify a vehicle that struck a motorcycle on Monday evening and fled the scene.

At approximately 5:30 p.m., on Monday, April 20, 2015, a red Harley Davidson motorcycle was travelling northbound on Deerfoot Trail near the 130 Avenue S.E. exit when an altercation occurred between the rider and the driver of another vehicle. While both vehicles were travelling at approximately 100 km/h, the other vehicle pulled alongside the motorcycle and made contact with it, knocking the rider off.

The motorcycle rider was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The other vehicle is described as a red, two-door Honda Civic with a spoiler on the back. The model year is believed to be between 2009 and 2013. Witnesses saw the vehicle exit off Deerfoot Trail onto 24 Street S.E., possibly headed towards Douglas Glen.

Police are asking anyone who was driving north on Deerfoot Trail between Seton and Douglasdale between 5:20 p.m. and 5:40 p.m. and witnessed the event to contact the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234. Any drivers with a dash camera who were driving in the area are also asked to check their videos for the red Honda Civic, as an image of the vehicle could help identify the driver.
