Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a black Acura that left a 38-year-old male pedestrian in medical distress, following a hit-and-run collision in southeast Edmonton last weekend.
On Saturday, June 8, 2019, at approximately 12:50 a.m., Southeast Division patrol members responded to a collision call involving a vehicle and a pedestrian on 23 Avenue just east of 85 Street.
It was reported to police, that the male pedestrian was walking northbound across 23 Avenue in a marked crosswalk, when a vehicle travelled eastbound stopped in lane #2 (outside right lane) to let the male safely cross the road. Shortly thereafter, a second vehicle travelling in lane #1 (inside left lane) believed to be a black Acura, allegedly struck the male, before fleeing the scene. The male pedestrian was left on the grass median in serious medical distress, before being tended to by a motorist.
