A 66-year-old man from the Powerview-Pine Falls area has been charged in an April hit-and-run incident on Highway 59, Manitoba RCMP said.
Richard Nevedly will appear in a Selkirk courtroom Sept. 8 to face charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and failure to stop after an accident causing death, in connection to the April 20 crash that took place in Scanterbury, Man.
The victim, a 75-year-old Scanterbury man, had been walking on the right-hand shoulder of the highway when he was hit from behind by a vehicle. The suspect vehicle, police said, failed to remain at the scene.
After an investigation, Nevedly was served Wednesday with a summons to appear in court.
