Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service has laid charges in a hit-and-run collision that took place earlier this month in west Edmonton.
On Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019, police responded to the report of a hit-and-run collision in the area of 133 Street and Beuna Vista Road. It was reported to police that two vehicles, a BMW sedan and a BMW SUV, were driving erratically and stunting in the parking lot of the city zoo when the sedan struck a male staff member who was standing on a service road in the parking lot. Both vehicles then reportedly fled the scene.
EMS responded, treated and transported the 26-year-old male staff member to hospital with serious non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been released.
Following a thorough investigation, officers identified and charged the 16-year-old male driver of the sedan with dangerous driving causing bodily harm and hit-and-run causing bodily harm. Investigators also charged another 17-year-old male for being party to the offence with hit-and-run causing bodily harm and attempting to obstruct justice.
Both youths were issued appearance notices and are expected in court in the new year.
