It’s been more than a month since 46-year-old Andrew Green, a new Edmontonian who had just moved into the area from Toronto more than six months ago, was struck and killed by a vehicle on the Anthony Henday near 62 Avenue.
Police said he had pulled over to help a stranded driver in the southbound lanes of the Henday near 62 Avenue the evening of June 13th.
Investigators were called to the scene after the man was struck and killed instantly by a passing vehicle.
The driver of the SUV that police believe was involved in the hit-and-run collision did turn himself in to police 24 hours later, but officers say he has been uncooperative since that time.
Today, police are urging witnesses of the hit-and-run fatality to come forward.
“Any additional information motorists might have that were travelling along the Henday near 62 Avenue that fateful Wednesday evening, could be invaluable to our investigation,” said Const. Martin McKenna, of the EPS Collision Investigation Squad.
Anyone travelling the Henday that evening, who recalls seeing a black 2008 Porsche Cayenne near the scene of the hit-and-run fatality, is asked to contact EPS at 780-423-4567, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
