Mounties are looking for a driver involved in a hit-and-run in Airdrie that happened at noon on Friday.

According to a news release, officers responded to reports of a hit-and-run that happened in a parking lot of the Superstore located at 300 Veterans Blvd. Police said a two-year-old child broke loose from her parent, ran into the parking lot and was struck by a vehicle.

The driver failed to remain on scene, RCMP said, noting that the child did not have serious injuries.

Mounties are now looking for the vehicle, which they described as an older navy blue hatchback — possibly a Subaru Justy, Mazda 323 or similar vehicle.

Mounties are also looking for the male driver, who they described as someone in their mid-20s to early 30s with black hair and a beard.
