Over the last couple of days the Estevan Police Service has had several hit and run incidents. 

"A hit and run is where one of the parties does not stop or does not report the incident to the police or to the owner of the other vehicle. Lots of times accidents are non-re-portable which means as long as you exchange information, the damages are not significant meaning that one or both of the vehicles are drive-able and no one is impaired by any type of substance, the police don't need to be notified but you need to let the owner of the other vehicle know," shared Sargent Evan Handley.

There are different precautions you have to take if you are involved in an accident with another vehicle but you can't talk to the owner. 

"Leave them a note, everybody has windshield wipers so just leave them a note. If you don't have paper, call the city police and say "hey, I was just involved in an accident. I just want to report this but I can't find who the person is," and we will be more than happy to come out where you are and assist you in anyway. We can help out by giving one of our cards so you can write your information down, that's basically all we're looking for. SGI just needs that information to deal with the accident." 

The Estevan Police Service has recently gotten a call concerning a hit and run. 

""That was that accident involving a Dodge Carivan which hit another vehicle and fled the scene the other day. We're still looking for the owner of the vehicle, it was a Dodge Carivan and dark in color. Anybody with any information can call the Estevan police service to provide information or they can call Crime Stoppers," stated Sargent Handely. 

The Number for Crime Stoppers is 1-800-222-8477
