Police are looking for a Calgary man after a pedestrian was hit by a truck in High River.
According to a release from High River RCMP, police officers were called to the town’s Lineham Acres Drive on May 3 due to reports of two people arguing. Another complaint was called in shortly after the first, stating that a man had been struck by a vehicle just one block away from where the initial argument took place.
When officers arrived, the victim stated that he had been hit by a vehicle — a black Ford F-350 — that had been driven by the man he was arguing with earlier.
High River RCMP believe that Brendan Treacy of Calgary is responsible for the hit-and-run, and is asking the public’s assistance in locating him.
According to the release, police believe that Treacy had driven his truck out of a back alley, onto a sidewalk, and struck the victim with his front bumper, causing the man to fly forward several metres.
It is believed that he then fled heading north on Highway 2A.
Treacy has since been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, assault with a weapon, and operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.
Anyone with information on the hit-and-run, or the location of Treacy, is asked to contact the High River RCMP at 403-652-2357, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477, or online through their website.
