Chase RCMP responded to a call about a hit and run that caused significant damage to a property on New Year’s Day.

Officers were called to a property on Pine Street and determined that a white pickup truck was travelling northbound around 3 a.m. when it veered off the road to the right, reported Sgt. Barry Kennedy in a media release. The truck slid across a front yard, hitting shrubs and plants and crashing into a fence. The fence broke and a vehicle parked in a neighbouring yard was damaged.

The driver drove the truck out of the yard and fled the scene, continuing north on Pine Street, Kennedy said.

The truck is described as white with a lift kit and a canopy or box in the truck bed. The truck will have damage on the front passenger side and likely will also be damaged underneath.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221.
