EDMONTON, Alta. — The family of an Edmonton truck driver is posting a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of suspects who allegedly beat the 52-year-old driver up during a confrontation at a truck wash.

According to the Edmonton Sun, longtime driver Garry Tasse was attacked at the Gear Jammer truck wash near 99 St. and 57 Ave. around 1:30 p.m. Oct. 9.

He’s been left with a broken leg and will be unable to work for at least three months, the Sun reports.

The altercation occurred when Tasse was accused of butting into the line. The attackers, described only as east Asian, took off in a rig that was so dirty the licence plate and company logo were unreadable.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Edmonton police at 780-423-4567.
