Asking public for help

For Immediate Release:07-Oct-2017 @ 12:40 PM
MRU #:TR17R036

The EPS Traffic Section continues to search for the suspect vehicle and driver responsible for a hit and run on the evening of Oct. 5, 2017.

A 40-year-old man sustained life-threatening injuries when he was struck in a marked crossed walk at 82 Street and 128A Avenue around 8:10 p.m. on Oct 5, 2017. The vehicle, which was travelling southbound on 82 Street, did not stop and left the scene. An astute citizen safely followed the vehicle, providing police with the license plate number, but lost sight of it at 66 Street and 128 Avenue where the truck was last seen travelling at a high rate of speed.


Investigators are asking the public for information that could help them locate the suspect vehicle and driver.


The EPS is looking for a white 2011 Ford F-250 Superduty crew pickup truck with a long box with construction bars in the box. It's believed the truck may have front end damage as a result of the collision. It was also reported that the back of the truck had lettering or letter decals of “Backrack,” has tinted windows, was heavily covered in white/grey dust, with the license plate BDC 1081.  


Anyone with information about this vehicle or its driver is encouraged to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.
