Terrace RCMP have seized the vehicle thought to be connected with a hit-and-run incident outside of the Terrace Toyota car dealership.
Police received a call from one of the dealership’s employees at 10 a.m. on Sept. 2 that an overnight collision had damaged four vehicles parked facing Hwy16 outside the dealership. No one was injured.
The suspected vehicle was located behind Boston Pizza further west, but the identity of the driver has not yet been confirmed.
Police say details of the crash are limited, There is no video footage of the collision or witness reports from the scene.
“They consider it as a hit-and-run. It’s still under investigation,” said RCMP Sgt. Mario Cloutier.
Terrace Toyota sales manager Bob Costain said he suspects the driver was travelling westbound along Hwy 16 when he hit the four Tundras, causing minor damages to three of the vehicles and extensive damage to the fourth. He said he expects the damages will be covered by the driver’s insurance.
“[The driver] crossed the sidewalk, came up onto the sidewalk and actually passed through into the cars. Fortunately, no one was hurt,” Costain said over the phone. “The big thing is, we can get new cars and new trucks, but we can’t replace people.”
