Police are looking for a motorist they say was driving dangerously when he struck a man and his snowblower in a central Alberta town last week.

RCMP responded to a complaint that a motorist had blown through the intersection at 52nd Avenue and 51st Street in the town of Castor, Alta., on Feb. 14 at about 4:30 p.m.

Castor is about 140 kilometres east of Red Deer.

The man, who is described as being between 25 and 35 years old with dark hair and a moustache, "sped away from the intersection, lost control and struck a pedestrian and his snowblower. The driver did not stop and proceeded eastbound toward Gus Wetter School. Fortunately, the pedestrian did not sustain serious injuries," police said in a Tuesday release.

The vehicle was a blue, newer model, four-door pickup truck.
