13-year-old boy killed in hit-and-run crash in Mill Woods: police


A 13-year-old boy on his bicycle was killed in a hit-and-run in south Edmonton Wednesday morning.

The boy was found on 34 Avenue between 48 Street and Mill Woods Road around 4 a.m.

He died at the scene.

According to Sgt. Richard Windover, there was no vehicle at the scene when emergency responders arrived.

"It appears the vehicle did leave, so this is considered a hit and run at this time," he told CTV News Edmonton.

"It is a very sad, terrible time when you have a young person – especially in a case like this where early in the morning, looks like a hit and run and somebody took off and didn't even stop."

Police say they're looking for a blue 2014-2018 Mazda 3 sedan or hatchback.

The road was closed for several hours after the crash, but has since reopened.
