Hit-and-run may be linked to vehicle fire
Police in St. John's are investigating a hit-and-run on Sunday night that appears to be connected to a vehicle fire.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary was told just before 10 p.m. that a driver had struck a car parked on Old Topsail Road, and then left the scene.
Minutes later, someone reported that a car was burning in a parking lot in Bishop Meaden Manor, a nearby seniors' complex.
The burning car matched the description of the one involved in the hit-and-run.
Police said it appears that the fire was intentionally set.
No injuries have been reported.
The RNC is searching for suspects in the case.
