UPDATE: Edmonton police have now charged a man with hit and run and impaired driving in this case. The victim–was 16.
-A young woman was killed in a hit and run last night. Edmonton police say she had been crossing at 113th Street and Kingsway Avenue–and was IN the crosswalk when she was hit by a pickup. The truck didnt stick around. But—an off-duty cop saw what happened–and followed the truck–while calling for extra help. The driver was picked up a short time later. Looks like alcohol was a factor.
