Airdrie Mounties are asking for the public's assistance in identifying a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run earlier this afternoon in which a toddler was struck by a vehicle. 

According to police, near noon, police were informed of a hit and run that took place in the parking lot of the Superstore at 300 Veterans Boulevard in Airdrie.
