March 24, 2015 - 2:56 PM

LAKE COUNTRY - Two women out for a stroll in Lake Country were struck by a leather covered, wooden pick-up box cover which apparently flew off a passing truck last week.

The pair were out walking their dogs at around 4:30 p.m., Saturday, March 14, in the 3500-block of Woodsdale Road when the incident occurred, according to an RCMP media release.

The box cover came off the back of a pickup truck as it was passing by. It hit both of them, with the 23-year-old Lake Country woman receiving minor injuries and the 31-year-old Kelowna woman suffering serious, non-life-threatening injuries. Both were taken to hospital for treatment.

No description of the driver is available. The pick-up truck box cover is described covered in leather with hinges attached to it. 

Police would like to speak with the driver of the truck.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Lake Country RCMP, Const. Bellia, at 250-766-2288. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
