RCMP respond to vehicle-pedestrian hit and run

Halifax District RCMP is investigating a hit and run involving a pedestrian. This is the second incident of this nature to be reported to RCMP in the past two days.

Shortly after 7 a.m. yesterday, a 27-year-old woman was crossing Sackville Dr. in a marked crosswalk when she was struck by a vehicle. The woman fell to the ground and the vehicle stopped. The driver proceeded to drive off without checking on the victim. The victim managed to walk home and then attend the Cobequid Community Health Centre where she was treated for minor injuries.

RCMP would like to speak with the driver of the car, which is described as being a small silver car. The driver is described as being a white female with blondish/brown hair. The vehicle was last seen turning left on to Sackville Dr. from Beaverbank Rd.

The investigation is continuing. If anyone may have witnessed this incident or have any information on what took place you are asked to contact the Halifax District RCMP at 902-490-5020. Should you wish to remain anonymous, you can also contact Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or text TIP202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or submit tips by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca. Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped or traced and if police make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash award.
