Kings Dis­trict RCMP is ask­ing for mem­bers of the pub­lic to help lo­cate a ve­hi­cle in­volved in a hi­tand-run in South Ber­wick.

The RCMP re­ceived a call the evening of May 14 from a driver in­volved in an ac­ci­dent where her car was hit twice from be­hind by the same car, which then fled the scene.

The driver was trav­el­ing with three pas­sen­gers, and all four were treated road­side and re­leased by an EHS team at the scene. Her ve­hi­cle also sus­tained sig­nif­i­cant dam­age.

The sus­pect ve­hi­cle is de­scribed as a dark coloured sedan, pos­si­bly a Mit­subishi Lancer, with ob­vi­ous dam­age to its front end and driv- er’s side. The driver, who has also not been lo­cated, is de­scribed as a young fe­male with blonde/brown hair who was wear­ing sun­glasses.

RCMP me­dia of­fi­cer Cpl. Jen­nifer Clarke con­firmed po­lice sus­pect this was a targeted in­ci­dent but they are still look­ing for in­for­ma­tion.

“This is a very trou­bling in­ci­dent. The four peo­ple weren’t se­ri­ously in­jured, but it’s ter­ri­fy­ing none­the­less,” she said, adding in­ci­dents such as these re­quire the com­mu­nity’s help.

“We have to alarm the peo­ple in­volved and the com­mu­nity – this is prob­a­bly the time to pro­vide what­ever in­for­ma­tion they have to help us get to the bot­tom of what caused this. They do need to call us.”

The sedan was last seen driv­ing east on High­way 1. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the sus­pect car and/or driver is asked to ei­ther call Kings Dis­trict RCMP at 902-6795555.
