Seeking public assistance in fatal hit and run collision
The Calgary Police Service Traffic Section is seeking public assistance to locate a person who may have information in relation to a fatal hit and run collision that occurred on Thursday, Feb. 18, 2016.
At approximately 6:30 a.m., police received a report of a two motor vehicle collision and subsequent witness reports that one of the vehicles involved, a truck, was going southbound in the northbound lanes of 37 Street S.W. The truck collided with another vehicle just south of the intersection at 130 Avenue S.W. and occupants of the truck ran from the scene. It is believed the truck was stolen from Chestermere prior to the incident.
The driver of the other vehicle, Keith Arthur MORLEY, 52, sustained fatal injuries and was declared deceased on scene.
The Calgary Police Service Canine Unit attended and arrested two people near the scene of the collision.
Janelle UMPHERVILLE, 26, was charged with four counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000, one count of occupying a stolen motor vehicle and one count of breach of a recognizance order.
A 17-year-old male was charged with one count of possession of stolen property under $5,000 and one count of occupying a stolen motor vehicle.
Police are now looking to speak with a third individual, Derek Brian GROUETTE, 33, who may have information relating to the collision. A photo of GROUETTE is available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.
As the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) continues to investigate, no further details will be released at this time.
