PONOKA – Mounties in central Alberta are hoping someone has video of a truck hitting a protester earlier this month.

On Sept. 10, Ponoka RCMP was called to Highway 2A near Highway 53 where an anti-racism rally was taking place.

The group of protesters were met with counter-protests from yellow-vesters, according to Black and Indigenous Alliance Alberta (BIAA), which organized the rally.

“Later on, as we were making our way back to the rendezvous point, a truck swerved into our group, hitting one of our warriors,” read a previous a statement from BIAA.

The truck sped off.

EMS attended and treated the victim, a 38-year-old Calgary man, and he was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Ponoka RCMP say officers continue to investigate and are asking anyone with dashcam or video footage of the event to contact them.

Anyone else with information is also asked to call RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
