Victim not speaking to police after being run over by his father

July 15, 2014 - 11:43 AM

KAMLOOPS – It’s unclear why a father was driving his son to Royal Inland Hospital in the first place, but police are saying the altercation between the two suggests the son had changed his mind once they arrived.

On Monday afternoon, the two had a verbal dispute in the emergency drop-off zone before the father drove away – dragging his son under the vehicle.

“The victim suffered possible broken bones and abrasions from being hit, but is not cooperating with police at this time,” RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush says.

Bush says police are following up on several tips they received from the public and are reviewing security camera footage. Members are recommending charges of driving without due care and attention.

The victim is known to police.
