Police on lookout for two of three hit and run drivers

Guelph was the site of three hit-and-run type accidents on the weekend, and police are still looking for two of the drivers.
A 2004 Oldsmobile was rear-ended by another car at the intersection of Silvercreek Parkway and Speedvale Avenue last Friday.
The two drivers agreed to pull into a nearby parking lot to call police, but instead the other car drove away, a news release said.
The second incident involved a white pickup truck towing a portable building or shed on Stevenson Street North.
On Jan. 12 at around 2:30 p.m. as the truck passed between Cassino and Rosedale avenues, the load on the trailer came into contact with overhead utility wires, ripping down and destroying several hundred metres of television cable, a news release said.
Police had to intermittently closed Stevenson Street over a three-hour period while Guelph Hydro worked to restore electricity.
The responsible vehicle is believed to be a GM truck, and the portable building on it was described as having a pole or utility stack protruding from the top.
In a third hit-and-run on Jan. 13 at around 2:40 a.m., a vehicle hit a light pole in the centre median of 1 Stone Rd. W.  It continued onto Edinburgh Road South, where it was found by police.
A 26-year-old Guelph man is charged with impaired driving and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.
