For Immediate Release: 17-Sep-2022 @ 3:25 PM
MRU #: TR220021-1 

The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) has located the motorcycle related to a hit-and-run collision involving a police officer earlier this week.

On Friday, Sept. 16, 2022, officers executed a search warrant at a residence in the Windermere area, where the red 2005-2006 Honda CBR 600RR motorcycle involved in the hit-and-run was located. 

“We would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance distributing photos of the motorcycle and helping us to solicit information,” says Sergeant Travis Cruise with the EPS Major Collision Investigations Section. “We received many helpful tips and were able to locate it as a result.”

The officer struck by the motorcycle continues to recover in hospital.

The collision investigation remains ongoing at this time, and additional updates will be provided when more information becomes available.

Background
At approximately 7:15 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2022, EPS Major Collision Investigations Section officers were conducting traffic enforcement in a construction zone in the area of Terwillegar Drive northbound and 37 Avenue when a member was struck by a red Honda motorcycle. The officer was attempting to direct the motorcycle to pull over when he was hit. The motorcycle then fled the scene northbound on Terwillegar Drive.

EMS responded, treated and transported the officer to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Photos of the motorcycle, described as a red 2005-2006 Honda CBR 600RR with gold rims, were released to the public and anyone with information was asked to contact police.

Terwillegar Drive between Rabbit Hill Road and 40 Avenue was closed for several hours while an alternate MCIS team investigated. Speed is considered a factor in this collision.
