Hit and run driver found

The driver of a pickup truck who injured the hand of a flagger on Westside Road Monday morning has come forward to police.

The hit and run collision occurred at about 10:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of Westside Road, while a construction flagger had stopped traffic in the northbound direction.

The driver of the lead vehicle, a white commercial Ford pickup, insisted on being let through, and ended up driving forward, knocking the sign out of the flaggers hand, injuring her hand.

While the driver initially stopped and exited his vehicle, police say he then fled the area.

After police reached out to the public for information about the incident on Wednesday, the driver has since come forward to police and is co-operating with their investigation.

“West Kelowna RCMP would like to hear from any witnesses who observed this incident and in particular would like to review any video footage that was recorded on a dashboard camera,” said Const. Lesley Smith.

“Independent witnesses are crucial for any traffic-related investigation as their information can assist in determining what exactly occurred at the scene”
