Police need help in hit and run incident in Fernie

Police are asking for help locating the driver of a Jeep that may have been involved in a hit and run on Friday.

Witnesses reported seeing a dark green SUV, possibly a Jeep Grand Cherokee, travelling eastbound in the 400 block of Second Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. when it collided with two parked vehicles. The SUV then sped away from the scene.

A partial B.C. licence plate was obtained from the suspect vehicle and is believed to have contained the numbers 255.

Extensive patrols of Fernie and the surrounding area were unsuccessful in locating this vehicle.

The suspect vehicle should have extensive damage to the passenger side, likely closer to the front.

Police are seeking information from anyone that may have witnessed this accident, witnessed the vehicle speeding down Second Avenue or perhaps seen the vehicle sitting on the street or in a driveway around the area.

Any information can be provided to your local RCMP office or through Crimestoppers at 1 (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
