RCMP is urging the driver and/or their legal counsel to come forward. They believe the driver is not acting alone.

Anyone with information regarding this collision who has not already spoken with police is asked to call Sgt. Shawn McLaughlin with West Pacific Region Traffic Services at 250-638-7438 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), quoting file 2018-11029.

Police have not released the name of the deceased, but friends have confirmed Terrace resident Cameron Kerr, 30, was struck and killed on Hwy 16 last weekend.

His body was discovered in a ditch on the north side of Hwy 16, approximately four kilometres west of Terrace, on Nov. 18.

Kerr was walking east on Hwy 16 on the westbound shoulder, facing traffic. It’s believed the pickup struck him between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m on Sunday. Friends say Kerr was attending the wake of one of his close friends in New Remo. Having consumed alcohol he chose to walk home.

Kerr used to play for the Terrace River Kings, was an active member of the paddling community and was known for his love of the outdoors.
