January 09, 2017 - 2:10 PM

KAMLOOPS - RCMP are looking for the driver of a silver van after a collision with a motorized wheelchair in Kamloops last week.

Police say at around 3 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 5, the silver van hit the motorized wheelchair while backing up in the 300 block of Seymour Street near the back of Thrift City.

While the person in the wheelchair was uninjured, the motorized wheelchair wasn't as lucky. It was damaged in the collision, according to a RCMP media release.

"The driver of the van got out and spoke to the driver of the scooter but left before sharing his name or vehicle insurance information," Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says in the release.

Police are now looking for the driver of the van.

If you know who the driver of the silver van was or if you are the driver, please contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
