Trail police are asking for tips to track down the male driver of a 2001 black Acura. The car may be missing a side mirror or had one recently replaced.
The driver is accused of leaving the scene after hitting and injuring a woman with the car the afternoon of Saturday, Feb. 26.
The hit-and-run occurred at 1:10 p.m. at the East Trail lights, at the intersection of Highway 3B and Second Avenue.
The impact knocked off the Acura’s side mirror.
Police report that after striking the 22-year old pedestrian, the man fled westbound on Highway 3B, which is toward downtown Trail.
“A witness saw the alleged driver and Acura stopped at a business in Warfield, before he continued driving on Highway 3B in the direction of Rossland,” Sgt. Mike Wicentowich, Trail detachment commander, said.
“The driver is described as young Indo-Canadian man with a beard and wearing a turban.”
Wicentowich says the victim was transported to hospital and treated for injuries, reported to be minor.
The driver in-question is facing a criminal charge for failing to stop.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Trail RCMP at 250.364.2566 to speak to an investigator.
