A Red Deer man has been arrested and charged after a young man died of injuries sustained after a vehicle allegedly hit him this past weekend.

On Oct. 6th at 2:05 a.m., an 18-year-old male was stuck by a westbound vehicle on the Taylor Dr. bridge. The suspect vehicle and driver did not remain at the scene. The male was pronounced deceased at the scene. News sources have identified the victim as 18-year-old Paul Bertin.

Later that day, RCMP located the suspect vehicle. Brent Robert Cameron, 24, has been charged with failing to stop and render assistance at the scene of a collision and public mischief.

Cameron made his first appearance in Red Deer provincial court yesterday.

The investigation has revealed that there was a passenger in the suspect vehicle at the time of the collision. RCMP are asking this person to contact the lead investigator, RCMP Cpl. Slavica Doktor at 403-406-2219 immediately.
