Prolific offender dies after jumping from moving vehicle
A 23-year-old man died after allegedly jumping from a moving vehicle in Glenmore Saturday morning.
Kelowna Mounties were called to a traffic incident on Glenmore Road near Union Road at 8:33 a.m. Saturday.
Victor John Francis Doyle was found roadside after he apparently jumped from the passenger seat of a moving vehicle.
He was taken to hospital in critical condition and died later that day.
Court documents show Doyle was a prolific offender.
Over the past five years he was found guilty of committing numerous crimes, including: Break and enter, theft under $5,000 and assault with a weapon.
Just last Thursday he was found guilty of possession of property under $5,000 obtained by crime and using a forged document.
He was expected to appear in court Wednesday for break and enter a dwelling with intent or commit, possession of property under $5,000 obtained by crime and possession of a controlled substance.
The 33-year-old driver in Saturday's incident was unlicensed; however, he remained on scene and cooperated with investigators.
Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark said the driver claimed he wasn't expecting Doyle to jump out of the vehicle.
He was issued a violation ticket for not having a valid driver's licence and isn't likely to face any other charges
