Regina Police believe a 2009 to 2012 Ford F-150 truck was the vehicle involved in the fatal hit and run Sunday evening.
Gallon was hit and killed while riding his bike near the intersection of Ross Avenue and McDonald Street.
A driver who did not witness the collision saw Gallon’s body laying in the east bound lanes of Ross Avenue and called police.
When officers arrived on the scene they found Gallon on the roadway, where he was pronounced dead.
The colour of the truck is not known at this time.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Regina police Service or Crime Stoppers, as the Major Crimes unit continues to investigate to locate the vehicle and a suspect.
