Taylor MacIntyre


On Monday (October 29) around 10:15 p.m., Grande Prairie RCMP responded to a collision at the intersection of 100 Street and 68 Avenue. 
Apparently, a white Ford F350 collided with a small Volkswagen. 
The lone person in the Volkswagen, a 26-year-old man from Edmonton, was transported to the hospital, but later died from his sustained injuries.
The driver of the Ford fled on foot in the Patterson area.
The suspect is described as a caucasian male, who was wearing black clothing. He may have injured his arm, as well as other possible injuries. 
Police Dog Services were on scene and searched for the man, but he was not found. 
An investigation proved that the Ford F350 was reported stolen from Grande Prairie on October 15. 
Additionally, before the fatal collision, officers allegedly came across the suspect vehicle driving erratically on 116 Street. Police attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the Ford failed to stop. For public safety, the vehicle was not engaged further by police. 
If anyone has any information about this incident or can identify and locate the suspect, contact Grande Prairie RCMP at 780-830-5701 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
