Trail police looking for driver in reported pedestrian hit and run

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Trail RCMP non-emergency line

Police are looking for tips following a reported pedestrian hit and run in downtown Trail on the weekend.

Sgt. Mike Wicentowich says a call came into the Trail and Greater District detachment on Saturday, shortly after noon.

“The RCMP investigated a complaint of a collision between a pedestrian and vehicle in the 1200 block of Cedar Avenue,” he explained.

“A pedestrian was walking across Cedar Avenue when she was struck in the back by a reversing gold-coloured Hyundai Sante Fe.”

Police describe the driver as an elderly male wearing a camouflage jacket, blue jeans, a ball cap, and glasses.

“The male spoke to the victim briefly before driving away from the scene,” Wicentowich said. “The male is believed to be a local resident and the RCMP is looking to identify him.”

The woman was crossing the road, not at the crosswalk. The sergeant says she attended the hospital for treatment of minor injuries and was later released.

“We are investigating what was said between the two parties and are looking to speak to the driver for his version of events,” Wicentowich said.

“We will then determine if a criminal code or BC Motor Vehicle Act offence occurred.”

Anyone with information about the incident or the driver’s identity is encouraged to call the detachment at 250-364-2566.
