Police still searching for Hummer involved in hit-and-run
Police are still looking for a Hummer that struck a woman on a sidewalk in the east end of St. John's last month.
The hit and run occurred shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday, May 15 on Newfoundland Drive, between St. Paul's school and the McDonald's restaurant.
The 60-year-old woman was walking east when witnesses say the Hummer appeared to intentionally drive up on the sidewalk, hit her from behind, and speed away.
The woman was rushed to hospital with what were believed to be serious injuries at the time.
A spokesman for the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said the woman suffered a broken foot, and has since been released from hospital.
Police said the hit and run vehicle has yet to be found.
"We've checked with all registered Hummer owners around … we've checked their vehicles and spoken to the owners, but we've been unable to find the vehicle in question," Const. Steve Curnew told CBC.
The vehicle is described as a pickup style, tan coloured, four-door H3 Hummer.
Curnew said investigators have yet to determine a possible motive for the incident.
Police continue to appeal to witnesses for help solving the case and making an arrest. Anyone with information is urged to contact the RNC or Crime Stoppers.
