Olds, Alberta - On March 4th, 2019 at approximately 7:40 AM, the Olds RCMP, Fire Department and EMS were dispatched to a complaint of a theft of a truck and hit and run of a person in the Town of Bowden.
A dark coloured pickup truck, believed to be a GMC Sierra, with two male occupants and a snowmobile in the box was seen by a witness driving into a back alley. One male exited the truck and entered a Chevrolet Silverado parked outside a residence. The owner of that truck exited his house and confronted the suspect as he drove away. As he approached the truck, the victim was struck and run over. The suspect fled in the victim's truck, as did the driver of the other pick up truck.
The victim was transported to the Red Deer Regional Hospital with serious but non life threatening injuries. Both trucks were later recovered and police are still searching for the unknown suspects.
