Two people face numerous charges related to a hit-and-run investigation in Timberlea.

On July 20, at 10:00 p.m., Wood Buffalo RCMP received a complaint about a multi-vehicle collision, where a truck struck another vehicle, and then drove away.

No injuries were reported in the collision.

Officers combed the area and located the suspect vehicle parked not far from where its two occupants had entered a nearby taxi cab.

RCMP arrested a 42-year-old man and a woman without incident.

The man has been charged with failure to remain at the scene of an accident, and impaired operation by drug.

He also faces charges of possession of proceeds of crime, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Charges against the woman are pending.
