Moncton Man Charged After Hit And Run

A provincial court judge charged a 45-year-old Moncton man Friday after a hit-and-run last weekend involving a cyclist in the hub city.

Codiac RCMP and Ambulance New Brunswick responded shortly after 11 a.m. on Aug. 21 to a report of a hit-and-run between a car and a cyclist near Morton Avenue and Mascaret Street.

The driver fled the scene, and first responders transported the cyclist to the hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries.

Codiac RCMP say police arrested Michael Duncan Paul Hutchins on Aug. 25.

He appeared virtually in Moncton Provincial Court on Aug. 26 and faced one charge of failure to stop at the scene of an accident causing bodily harm.

Police remanded Hutchins into custody, with a bail hearing set for Aug. 30.
