RCMP FILE: 2013-59080

RCMP are still trying to locate the suspect responsible for a pedestrian hit and run that occurred on the 1600 block of Verdure Road in Black Mountain on October 30th, 2013. A woman driving to the store came upon a couple laying and moaning in the ditch just before 8:00 PM that night. The last thing the injured man could recall was walking with his back to traffic, hearing a vehicle approach from behind, and then turning around to see headlights coming at them. The police would like to hear from any witnesses to the accident, or anyone who has knowledge on the suspect.
