Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is releasing images of a suspect vehicle involved in a pedestrian hit-and-run collision Thursday afternoon in Mill Woods that sent a 20-year-old male to hospital in critical condition.
Southeast Division patrol officers responded to a hit-and-run collision call at approximately 4:45 p.m., today, Thursday, May 25, 2017, near 19 Avenue and 49 Street in the neighbourhood of Pollard Meadows.
Upon arrival, officers found a man lying on 19 Avenue in serious medical duress. The complainant was treated and transported to hospital by paramedics with critical, non-life-threatening injuries.
It was reported to police that the male complainant was standing on the sidewalk and speaking with the driver of a parked vehicle, when he allegedly ran northbound across 19 Avenue, where he was struck by an eastbound truck.
