Teenager seriously hurt in NE Calgary hit-and-run

A 16-year-old girl is in hospital after being seriously hurt in a hit-and-run in Calgary’s Pineridge community.

Calgary police responded to the call around 4 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 28, at the intersection of Pinemill Mews NE and 22 Avenue NE.

The Calgary Police Service (CPS) says the teen was sent to Foothills Hospital a short time later in life-threatening condition.

Police said Monday they believed there was a fight between the people in the vehicle and the pedestrian.

They explain the driver tried to leave while the pedestrian was holding on to the vehicle when she fell and was subsequently run over.

Investigators say the driver and other people in the vehicle checked on the girl, but then got back in the vehicle and left the scene.

The vehicle was found later in the morning and was seized by police.

Investigators say the driver — a 16-year-old boy — has come forward and talked to police.

The other people in the vehicle have yet to be identified.

The incident is continuing to be investigated.

Police are asking for anyone with information or dashcam footage to come forward or contact CrimeStoppers.

Residents in Pineridge earlier said it was only a matter of time until someone was hit in the area, as drivers have been known to travel over the posted 50 km/h speed limit.
