The St. George RCMP is asking for the public’s help following a hit and run collision involving a pedestrian in the community.
On February 3, 2024, at approximately 9:20 p.m., members of the St. George RCMP detachment, along with members of Ambulance New Brunswick, responded to a report of an individual laying on the shoulder of the road in the eastbound lane of Route 1, on the Magaguadavic overpass. When police arrived at the scene, they located a 45-year-old man who was nearly unconscious and was suffering from serious injuries. He was transported to hospital, and his injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.
As a result of the investigation, police believe that the man was struck by an eastbound vehicle at a high rate of speed, and remained there for approximately one hour before being found by a patrolling Conservation officer.
Police are currently working to identify the suspect vehicle, that is believed to have apparent passenger-side damage, and are asking for the public’s help. If you were travelling in the area and witnessed the collision or have dash-cam footage, or if you have information that could help further the investigation, please contact the St. George RCMP at 506-755-1130. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by downloading the secure P3 Mobile App, or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.
The investigation is ongoing with assistance from the New Brunswick RCMP Forensic Collision Analyst Team.
