KAMLOOPS - No arrests have been made as RCMP continue to investigate a hit and run on the Tk'emlups reserve yesterday that sent a woman to hospital with serious injuries.

The victim is in stable condition, but has serious injuries to her ankle, pelvis along with head trauma, according to a RCMP media release.

At about 7:26 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 28, a car hit a woman who was jogging in the 500 block of Athabasca Street West. The car slowed but sped away following the collision.

Two woman can be seen jogging surveillance in video from a nearby business and minutes later the suspect vehicle can be seen, RCMP say.

The suspect vehicle was found abandoned near the Halston overpass yesterday afternoon and has significant damage to the hood and windshield on the front passenger side. The car was stolen from Nanaimo Street early that morning.

A suspicious young man, who police are calling a person of interest, was also seen on the bridge wearing a black hoodie with white backpack. He was acting strangely with bizzare behaviour including walking in circles. Police say he may have been given a ride. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kamloops Rural detachment at 250-314-1800 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-8477.
