Winnipeg police are turning to the public to help locate a man wanted in a fatal hit and run which occurred on October 26.
Police were called to the area of Marbury Road and Mapleglen Drive at around 2:40 a.m. for the report of a crash involving a pedestrian. Police say the driver of a Dodge Charger and the driver of a black Infiniti G35 became involved in a driving dispute.
The 31-year-old male passenger of the G35 exited the vehicle to speak with the other driver, at which time the Charger is said to have suddenly drove toward him at a high rate of speed while he was standing in the roadway.
