Seeking information about a suspicious vehicle incident

Police are asking for public assistance following a suspicious vehicle incident in which a child is believed to be a passenger.

At approximately 11 a.m., Monday, Nov. 14, 2016, a patrol officer in a marked police vehicle spotted a truck stopped at the curb facing west in the inside lane of the McKenzie Towne roundabout. The officer pulled over to offer his assistance, activating his lights to alert traffic in the area.

The officer approached the vehicle and noticed a young girl, approximately 10 to 13 years old, in the front passenger seat who appeared visibly upset.

As the officer instructed the driver to roll down a window, the truck took off. The truck travelled westbound Mackenzie Boulevard, then north on QEII, before taking the off ramp for 130 Avenue eastbound, where it struck a car waiting for a pedestrian to cross. It then left the scene eastbound on 130 Avenue S.E.

The truck is described as a dirty, blue, Dodge Ram with a dirt-covered B.C. license plate. The first letter in the license plate is believed to be a D. The truck will have front-end damage from the collision.

The driver is described as a Caucasian female, approximately 35 to 40 years old, with long dirty-blonde hair and a slender build.

Officers would like to check on the welfare of the child in the vehicle and would like to speak to the driver about the incident.

Photos of the truck taken from the in-car digital camera from the police vehicle are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone who may have information about this incident, the whereabouts of the truck, or the identity of the passengers, is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
