WATCH: A 16-year-old girl was hit by a vehicle in Gretna, Manitoba – Oct 26, 2020

Manitoba RCMP have released video footage of a hit-and-run in Gretna, Man., that put a teenage girl in hospital with what her father told Global News was a “severe head injury”.

Pembina Valley RCMP released the footage as they continue to investigate the Sept. 30 incident, which took place around 10:30 p.m. on Pieper Avenue in the southern Manitoba community.

Police said they’re looking for a silver crossover-style SUV or minivan with narrow tail-lights that wrap around the side of the vehicle, with visible damage on the passenger side — specifically to the front bumper.

The damage, they said, could be something as minor as scraped paint, or could be more significant.

Earlier this month, a group of area farmers helped the girl’s father, Rob Harms, with his harvest while he was occupied with the situation.

Harms said friends and neighbours showed up and combined 500 acres of soybeans on his Snowflake, Man. farm in four and a half hours.

Anyone with information about the hit-and-run is asked to call RCMP at 204-745-6760.
