On Tues­day, Jan­uary 3, 2017 at ap­prox­i­mately 11:45 a.m., a fire hy­drant was struck in Wil­low Point, near the DVSS High School.

The in­volved ve­hi­cle im­me­di­ately left the scene and failed to re­port the col­li­sion. A wit­ness to the col­li­sion saw a white, older model, dam­aged Ford F-150 leave the scene. The F-150 is be­lieved to be in the mid to late 1990's with a rounded front end.

The hy­drant was broke off at the base and will cost the town of Drumheller over $2,000.00 to re­place.

Dam­age to the truck should be to the cen­tre of the rear bumper. The hy­drant was pri­mar­ily yel­low with orange valve caps and may have trans­ferred some of the colour to the bumper of the truck.

Drumheller RCMP are seek­ing the pub­lic's as­sis­tance in lo­cat­ing this ve­hi­cle and owner.
