Shortly before midnight Saturday, May 30, the RNC responded to a single-vehicle collision on Hamilton Avenue at the intersection of LeMarchant Road in St. John's.
A 1995 red-coloured Saturn car was east bound on Hamilton Avenue when it drove onto a traffic island where it struck a traffic sign post. Witnesses indicated three males exited the vehicle and left the scene right after the crash.
The driver was described as being approximately 5'7" tall, 180 lbs, balding, goatee-style facial hair. He was described as wearing a blue vest, dark pants, plaid shirt and white sneakers.
Images recorded shortly after the crash are of a person believed to be the driver.
