Gas station employee in hospital after hit and run
RCMP in Edmonton are on the hunt for a man who allegedly ran over a gas station employee during a gas and dash Saturday afternoon.
Chu Thai, the manager of the Superstore Gas Bar where the incident took place, told CTV Edmonton his employee Shawn Yantha attempted to stop a man from leaving the gas station without paying, when the suspect took off.
“He thought that the guy forgot to pay, so he went out there and reached over to tell the guy, ‘You have not paid yet,’ and the guy sped off and dragged him for about three metres,” Thai said.
