QEII Hit and Run Driver Sought

RED DEER AB- RCMP Crime Report – The QEII Integrated Traffic Unit (comprised of RCMP and Alberta Sheriffs) are seeking assistance from the public with regards to a hit and run collision that occurred on the QEII Highway on Friday January 24, 2014.

At approximately 3:30PM MST, Police and emergency crews responded to an accident on the QEII Highway involving a transport truck and a small sedan. Police were notified that the collision occurred in the north bound lanes south of the Highway 11a overpass (near Red Deer, Alberta).
