Calgary, AB,

Police continue to seek truck involved in hit and run

The Calgary Police Service continues to seek public assistance to help locate a truck that hit a pedestrian at the end of July.

At approximately 4 p.m., on Friday, July 26, 2019, a woman in her late 20s was walking her dog through the north end of a parking lot near Pearce Island Estate, in the Inglewood-Ramsay area, when the driver of the truck turned a corner and struck her.

It is believed the driver of the truck then quickly left the parking lot, driving over a curb and hitting a metal gate on the way out. The woman was transported to hospital in serious condition and the driver did not return to the scene. The dog fled but was recovered shortly afterward.

The truck is described as a white, newer model Toyota Tacoma quad cab truck, with tinted windows, lifted suspension, black rims, black bumper, and tinted headlight covers.

A CCTV photo of the vehicle is available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information on the collision, the identity of the driver, or the whereabouts of the vehicle, is asked to contact the Calgary Police Traffic Section at 403-567-4000, the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers anonymously through the following methods:
