VERNON - Police need help finding the driver of a Jeep involved in a hit-and-run Wednesday evening.

The two vehicle crash between a blue Jeep and a Hyundai happened at 39 Avenue and Alexis Park Drive at roughly 5:30 p.m.

The driver of the Jeep ran from the scene while the 44-year-old driver of the Hyundai remained in her car suffering from serious injuries, according to an RCMP media release. She was taken by ambulance to Vernon Jubilee Hospital then transferred to Vancouver General Hospital today.

Police are hoping someone knows who the driver of the Jeep is and will come forward.

Mounties believe he's in his 20s and though he was able to run from the scene, may be injured as well.

Anyone with information can contact Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
