EDMONTON -- A semi truck driver is being sought by police after hitting a man stopped along Highway 43 to remove a deer carcass.
The victim -- who suffered a broken leg, hip and pelvis -- was airlifted from the scene south on Highway 43 near Mayerthorpe, Alta., 120 km northwest of Edmonton, about 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
The victim and a passenger stopped along the side of the road after hitting the deer.
As the driver was getting back into his vehicle, he was struck down by the southbound semi truck and trailer, which kept going.
The passenger pulled his buddy off the highway and called an ambulance.
The only description available for the semi is that it was pulling a white cargo trailer with lots of orange and red lights down the side.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Mayerthorpe RCMP, or their local police.
