RCMP released a photo of the suspect vehicle that allegedly struck and killed a man in Thorsby Friday afternoon.
Police said the collision happened at 3: 45 p.m., after a Fas Gas employee was attempting to stop or get the attention of a vehicle that was leaving the gas station without paying for gas.
The vehicle, described as a medium-sized white commercial cube van with unique decaling on the side, struck the man and fled the scene, RCMP said.
The cube van is believed to be stolen.
The 54-year-old man died on scene.
The customers who often interacted with the victim remember him fondly.
"He was a super nice guy," Lori Pake told CTV News. "He would come out and pump your gas and he was always super friendly."
