Police looking for suspect vehicle in Anderson Road hit and run crash
A 19-year old man is in hospital in critical condition after a hit and run collision in southwest Calgary on Wednesday night.
Just before 8:30 p.m., a 44-year old man and his 19-year old son traveling in a 2005 Hyundai Accent were in the left turn lane on eastbound Anderson Road SW, waiting to turn onto northbound 14 St SW.
An unknown vehicle crashed into the rear of the small car, pushing it into the intersection and the path of an oncoming westbound Dodge Durango.
The driver of the Durango, a 29-year old man, tried to steer around the Hyundai, but couldn’t avoid hitting the right side of the car.
Both vehicles ended up on the northwest corner median of the intersection.
The young man who was the passenger in the Hyundai suffered critical injuries and was rushed to hospital. The two drivers suffered minor injuries.
Calgary Police report neither alcohol or speed were factors with any of the parties who were found at the scene.
Investigators believe the hit and run vehicle is a pickup truck similar to a Dodge Dakota or Toyota Tundra and has a front bumper height that is taller than most vehicles.
Police are searching for the suspect vehicle in the Anderson Road hit and run crash.
Anyone with information on the collision is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service Traffic Section at 403 567 4000 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222 8477.
