Hit and run suspect identified

RCMP say they've identified a suspect from a hit and run incident near Meductic last month, but they're not willing to name him at this time.

On Feb. 4, a pickup truck collided with a tractor trailer on the Trans-Canada Highway near Meductic.

RCMP officers issued a request for public assistance, explaining that a dark blue, extended cab, pickup truck entered the east-bound lane of the highway from the on-ramp and struck a transport truck that was travelling in the same direction.

Both vehicles received significant damage but the driver of the pickup continued travelling east on the highway.

Police said the truck may have had licence plates from Saskatchewan.

It is believed the suspect visited the Irving Big Stop in Lincoln around 5 p.m. on Feb. 4, where police obtained video footage.

The investigation continues.
