Update: Suspected hit-and-run driver being questioned by police
Castlegar RCMP have seized a vehicle in connection with a hit-and-run accident Sunday night, and a 78-year-old man is being questioned in relation to the matter, according to RCMP Sgt. Laurel Mathew.
“He came down to the detachment this morning,” she said. “The investigation is a complex one, and is ongoing.”
Police responded to the accident at 11:45 p.m., after a resident called to say a man was lying in the road, apparently badly injured.
“The 52-year-old victim was transported to Kelowna hospital. At the time of this update, his condition is believed to be very serious, but that is all that is known at this time.”
Mathew said the investigation is ongoing, and updates will be provided as soon as more information is available.
