Police Look For Hit and Run Driver and Car
Maple Ridge, B.C. – Ridge Meadows RCMP are asking for the public’s help in locating a silver Nissan Altima that struck and injured a roads maintenance worker.  The incident occurred just before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday February 6, 2013.  The worker was with a fellow employee in the 24100 block of Lougheed Highway when they observed a car traveling at a high rate of speed.  The workers ran towards the middle of the four lane highway to avoid the vehicle, but the car also altered its course towards the middle of the road.  The car struck the work truck, and then one of the workers before it stopped for a brief moment.  The car then sped off on the highway towards Mission.
Sergeant Dale Somerville said, “The potential for this incident to be worse was certainly there.  The employee received injuries to his back and leg, but these are not life threatening.  The passenger side mirror was torn off when it came into contact with our victim, and police have that mirror.  Through that we have identified this vehicle as a 2006 to 2012 Nissan Altima.  We do not have a licence plate number to follow up on.
We’re asking the public for help on this one.  If you have any information regarding a silver Nissan Altima that is missing its passenger side mirror, you are asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251, or CRIMESTOPPERS.”
The investigation is continuing.  If you wish to remain anonymous call CRIME STOPPERS at 1 800 222-8477 or leave a TIP online at www.solvecrime.ca.  Crime Stoppers will pay a reward of up to $2000.00 if your information leads to an arrest and conviction.
This release was authorized by Sergeant Dale Somerville.
