Elderly pedestrian struck and killed

Police in Kamloops, B.C., are looking for the driver of a truck in connection with a hit and run that killed a 73-year-old pedestrian on the east Trans-Canada Highway.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned says the man was apparently walking along the highway near the Valleyview interchange when he was struck at about 1 a.m. Saturday.

Learned says lug nuts and other evidence at the scene suggest a transport truck may have been involved in the fatality.

Police are asking people at weigh scales and truck stops to watch for a truck missing parts and displaying damage on one side.

Mounties were called after several passing motorists reported a man lying on the side of the road.

His name has not been released. (CFJC)
