Police searching for black Acura involved in Saturday morning hit-and-run on 23 Avenue

Edmonton police are asking for public help in finding a black Acura sedan involved in a pedestrian hit-and-run early Saturday morning in the city’s southeast.

The early morning crash on 23 Avenue just east of 85 Street left a 38-year-old male pedestrian with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

The man was walking northbound on 23 Avenue in a marked crosswalk around 12:50 a.m. Saturday when a vehicle travelling eastbound stopped in the outside lane to let the man cross the road, police said in a news release Wednesday afternoon.

Then, police believe the black Acura travelling eastbound in the inside lane struck the man and fled the scene. The male pedestrian was left on the grass median in medical distress before being tended to by a motorist and transported to hospital, police said.

Investigators are looking for the four-door sedan believed to be an Acura that may be missing the driver-side mirror.

Police are asking anyone with information about the crash or the suspect vehicle to call 780-423-4567.
