Terrace RCMP seek witnesses to fatal hit and run

The community is grieving a young man killed in tragic hit and run outside Terrace last weekend.

Police have not released the name of the deceased, but friends have confirmed his identity as Terrace resident Cameron Kerr, 30.

His body was discovered in a ditch on the north side of Hwy 16, approximately four kilometres west of Terrace, on Nov. 18. In a press release, police say are appealing to the public for any information that may assist in their investigation. Injuries and evidence on the scene indicate Kerr was struck by a large pick-up type truck. The vehicle may be missing the passenger side mirror and would have significant damage to the passenger side.

Kerr was walking east on Hwy 16 on the westbound shoulder, facing traffic. It’s believed that the incident occurred between 3:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m on Sunday. Friends say Kerr was attending the wake of one of his close friends in New Remo, and having consumed alcohol chose to walk home.

Kerr used to play for the Terrace River Kings, was an active member of the paddling community and was known for his love of the outdoors.

Police are urging for anyone with information, or dash camera video footage, that was driving that route between those hours to call Sgt. Shawn McLaughlin with West Pacific Region Traffic Services at 250-638-7438 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
