RCMP investigating hit-and-run MVI

Shawnigan Lake RCMP are continuing to investigate a hit-and-run accident after the driver of a pickup truck forced an SUV off the Trans-Canada Highway this past Monday.

Police were called to the scene around 10:25 a.m. on Nov. 10 after the small pickup had entered the highway and collided with a southbound SUV, causing the SUV to careen across two northbound lanes of traffic and roll down an embankment.

The Malahat Fire Department was summoned to extricate the driver of the SUV, a 64-year-old Mill Bay woman. The driver was taken by BC Ambulance Service to Victoria General Hospital with undetermined injuries.

The driver of the pickup truck is alleged to have fled the scene, and was later identified as a 26-year-old Crofton man.

Charges had not been laid as of Thursday morning, and the man’s name was not released.

Anyone with information about the crash should contact Const. Raelyn Hart at the Shawnigan Lake RCMP at 250-743-5514, and quote file number 2014-3008, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
