Police search for Jeep Wrangler involved in hit and run collision
The Edmonton Police Service is asking for the public’s help to locate a stolen silver Jeep Wrangler allegedly involved in a hit and run collision that occurred in northeast Edmonton yesterday morning.
Officers responded to the area of Henry Avenue (near Hermitage Road) at approximately 6 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2015.
It is reported an adult male was making door-to-door deliveries in the area of Henry Avenue this morning. The man left his mid-size car running as he went to make a delivery and the vehicle was approached by a silver Jeep Wranger carrying four males.
A youth male allegedly exited the Jeep and entered the mid-size car. Police believe the youth was attempting to steal the vehicle.
The adult male returned to the vehicle and a short physical altercation occurred with the youth male. It is reported the Jeep Wrangler then attempted to flee the scene, striking the adult male, the youth male and the mid-size car in the process.
Both males sustained non-life threatening injuries and were treated and transported to hospital.
Police are searching for the stolen 2013 silver Jeep Wrangler involved in the hit and run collision. The vehicle has black rims and will likely be damaged on the front, back and passenger side. The vehicle is pictured below.
The youth male is in custody and the incident remains under investigation by the EPS Major Collision Investigation Unit. Charges have not been laid at this time.
