RED DEER- RCMP are asking for public assistance to identify the driver of a truck that struck a 17-year-old pedestrian as he crossed a north-end intersection last night, then fled the scene. 

The collision occurred at 10:15 p.m. as the teen was crossing the intersection at 71 St. and 50 Ave.

The truck did not stop at the stop sign and struck the victim, who landed on the hood of the truck before falling to the pavement.
