Police asking for help to locate truck involved in hit and run

The Calgary Police Service Traffic Section is asking for help to locate a truck that hit a pedestrian in the parking lot of Pearce Estate Park, located in the Inglewood-Ramsay area, before driving away.

At approximately 4 p.m., on Friday, July 26, 2019, a woman in her late 20s was walking through the north end of the parking lot when the driver of the truck turned a corner and struck her. She was thrown a few metres by the impact.

The truck is believed to have been a white, newer-model Toyota Tacoma, with tinted windows and raised suspension.
