Kelowna Mounties looking for woman near hit-and-run victim
Police are looking to identify and speak with a woman who was nearly hit by a vehicle fleeing from police two weeks ago.
The Kelowna RCMP Street Enforcement Teams and uniformed members attempted to conduct a traffic stop June 18 at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of Home Hardware located at 1650 Springfield Road.
"A 32-year-old Kelowna man, at large on outstanding warrants and believed to be actively evading capture, had been tracked by police to the parking lot," said Const. Kris Clark. "Investigators used their vehicles to box in the silver Saturn SL1 he was driving but he hit a police car and fled the area at a high rate of speed. In doing so, the suspect vehicle nearly struck an elderly woman who was walking in the parking lot at the time."
Police were later unable to locate the woman but are still looking to speak with her.
The woman, or anyone who might know her identity, is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP, Const. Celli, at 250-762-3300.
