Fort St. John RCMP have confirmed to Energeticcity.ca that the vehicle involved in Wednesday’s fatal hit and run has been found.

The truck was found in a parking lot of the Ridgeview Village townhouses, off of 85 Ave., Thursday night. The truck has been taken to an impound lot for further investigation.

Police have not released any further information about the investigation.

Police and the family of 87 year-old Nora Gallifer held a news conference, Thursday, pleading for the people responsible to come forward to police.

The accident happened just after noon when Gallifer and her husband, Herb Sandgrett, were getting into his vehicle to go to lunch.

An MTC pick-up truck backed into Gallifer, pinning her against her husband’s vehicle. The three occupants of the truck apparently got out, saw the woman and then got back into the truck and fled the scene.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Fort St. John RCMP detachment at 250-787-8140 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800- 222- 8477.
