Airdrie RCMP officers are looking for a man who allegedly pointed a firearm at a vehicle during a road rage incident near Balzac Feb. 4.
According to Airdrie RCMP Constable Jennifer Weedmark, a family was driving on Highway 566 at approximately 10 p.m. when the man began to tailgate them in the vehicle he was driving and flashing its high beams.
Both vehicles eventually came to a stop and the man allegedly pointed a firearm at the family so they left and called police, Weedmark said.
The man is described as having a dark complexion with a black moustache and mole on his left cheek. He was wearing a black ball cap, appeared to be in his 40s and was not alone in the vehicle.
The vehicle he was driving appeared to be a newer model white Sedan or possibly a Ford Taurus.
Hit and run
A 13-year-old girl was flown to hospital via Stars Air Ambulance following a hit and run collision in Langdon Feb. 17.
According to EMS spokesperson Stuart Brideaux, the girl was struck by a vehicle while she was walking near Henderson Road and 4th Street shortly before 6 p.m.
The driver fled the scene and the girl was transported to the Alberta Childrenís Hospital in Calgary in serious but stable condition with head injuries.
The incident remains under investigation.
