Search for hit & run driver

Kelowna RCMP are searching for the driver of a white Sport Utility Vehicle allegedly involved in a pedestrian hit and run Wednesday evening.

One eyewitness posted on social media, "witnessed a pedestrian being struck and launched thru the air - landing in the middle of the intersection. The driver kept driving but slowed down and looked back- appearing to pull over. She then took off!"

The incident happened at the intersection of Leckie Road and Baron Road just before 6 p.m. Wednesday. The suspect vehicle was last seen headed southbound on Leckie Road towards Springfield Road.

The pedestrian got assistance from people at the scene and the incident was reported to police. BC Ambulance transported the 34-year-old woman to hospital suffering serious injuries and the victim remains in hospital.
   
Witnesses have been unable to provide an accurate licence plate for the white Cadillac SUV but the driver is believed to be an older woman, possibly with blonde or light coloured hair.
 
“We hope that the driver involved in this unfortunate incident has a change of heart and that they now choose to do the right thing, by coming forward to speak with police,” states RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “As officers look to advance their still ongoing investigation, RCMP ask that all witnesses contact police.”
 
If you saw this incident, RCMP are asking you to contact Cst. Emily Tousignant with Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or call  Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
