Kelowna police looking for hit-and-run suspect

August 18, 2017 - 1:11 PM

KELOWNA - Police are looking for help to track down a driver who struck a man in Kelowna last weekend before fleeing the scene.

RCMP says at about 1:55 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 12, officers were called to the intersection of Gordon Drive and Lequime Road where a 30-year-old Kelowna man had been hit while walking southbound on Gordon.

The victim sustained a broken leg and minor abrasions to his arm and the driver did not stop to offer assistance, according to an RCMP media release.

The man was hit from behind by what is believed to be an imported car. After making a call for help he was taken to hospital and had surgery on his broken leg.

The suspect vehicle may have front end damage as a result of the collision and anybody with information about the hit-and-run who hasn't already contacted police are asked to do so by calling the Cst. Ryan Law of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. You can also leave a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or send a text to CRIMES (274637).
