RCMP seek witnesses to hit and run outside courthouse
On August 10, shortly after 4 p.m., Cranbrook RCMP was called to a hit and run involving a parking meter in the 100 block of 11th Avenue South, outside the Cranbrook Provincial Courthouse.
Investigation revealed the driver of a dark SUV had failed to stop at the intersection of 11th Avenue and 1st Street South, crossed into the oncoming lane and struck a parking meter as it continued onto the sidewalk before fleeing South onto 11th Avenue.
“Luckily no one was present on the sidewalk at the time,” said Sgt. Barry Graham, Cranbrook RCMP Operations NCO.
Investigators have determined the offending vehicle is a 2014 or 2015 Dodge Journey and will have noticeable damage on the front driver’s side.
