A 35-year-old West Kelowna man out walking his dog was hit by a car and left lying on the ground just after midnight yesterday.

The hit and run happened in the 1300 block of Hudson Road yesterday, Oct. 25, according to an RCMP media release.

RCMP say the blue sedan did not stop and was abandoned a short time later at the intersection of Hudson and Concord Roads. Despite calling in the dog team, police were not able to find the driver.

The man is recovering from serious injuries in hospital but his dog did not survive, RCMP said.

Jocelyn Noseworthy, spokesperson for the West Kelowna RCMP, said in the release. “Furthermore, if any motorist has any dash camera footage, or homeowner with surveillance video of the event, they are urged to contact the West Kelowna RCMP immediately.”

Witnesses are asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-250-768-2880, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or by leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net.
