Princeton police seek answers in hit and run

Do you know of a vehicle with unexplained damage?

Princeton RCMP are looking for a vehicle with unexplained damage to its front end.

On November 11 police received a call at 2 a.m. from a woman reporting a hit and run accident in front of her home, said Sergeant Barry Kennedy.

“She was looking out her window from her residence on Vermilion Avenue and said her truck had been smashed into as it had been moved from its original parking spot.”

Kennedy said two parked vehicles were actually damaged.

“An unknown vehicle was traveling south on Vermilion and drove straight into the truck which then pushed into a second vehicle.”

Tire tracks suggested “that the suspect vehicle then fish-tailed away from the scene…there was no braking prior to impact.”

Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP at 250-295-6911.
