Pedestrian hit and run

A pedestrian was struck in a hit-and-run incident at Sun Peaks Resort on Sunday.

About 3 a.m., Kamloops Rural RCMP attended the scene, where a group of three males had been walking along Sun Peaks Road. A dark-coloured, older model Chevy S-10 type pickup apparently struck the last male in the group and took off.

The victim, a 30-year-old male, was thrown off the roadway and suffered serious head and lower body injuries.  He was transported to Royal Inland Hospital, where he remains in serious but stable condition, said lead investigator Const. Brett Foley.

Police are seeking anyone with information on the hit and run, or who knows of a vehicle fitting the suspect description operating in the Sun Peaks area. They are urged to contact Kamloops Rural RCMP at 250-314-1800 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
