Hit and run accident leaves driver injured

West Kelowna RCMP are investigating a hit and run collision that occurred at the intersection of Bartley Road and Highway 97 last Saturday at 6 p.m.

A grey Ford Fiesta coupe was travelling north on Bartley Road and crossing Highway 97, on the green light, when a southbound white pickup truck turned left in front of the car.

The collision resulted in major damage to the Fiesta, and the 27 year old female driver, from Vernon, was taken to Kelowna General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The white pickup truck fled the scene immediately after the crash and has not yet been located.

RCMP are requesting the public’s help in identifying the white pickup truck, that would have fresh damage to the front end and front passenger corner.


Anyone with information about this accident is asked to contact  Cst. Kent Hall at the West Kelowna RCMP, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit
