Pedestrian struck, witnesses sought

Police are looking for the driver of a white Ford F-150 pick-up truck after a hit-and-run Saturday along Lake Range Drive, Huron Twp.

Police were contacted after a vehicle struck a pedestrian just after noon on Oct. 28. The OPP originally said the incident happened just after midnight, but corrected the time of the incident today (Wednesday).  Officers arrived to learn a man had been jogging along the shoulder of the road when he was struck by a side view mirror extender on a white Ford F-150.
