Police are looking for help after a cyclist was knocked off her bicycle by a passing motorist.
Staff Sgt. Scott West of the Salmon Arm RCMP reports that on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at approximately 5 p.m. a woman was cycling south on Balmoral Road in the South Shuswap toward the Trans-Canada Highway.
She was hit by the mirror of a passing car and knocked off her bicycle.
The woman described the vehicle as a small, older model, black car. The car did not stop but the victim believes there would have been damage to the mirror. West says she suffered minor injuries.
Police have followed up leads on possible vehicles and are now asking for the public’s assistance in locating the car that has a missing or damaged passenger side rear-view mirror.
West requests that if you believe you were the driver, come forward and report to the Salmon Arm RCMP.
“If you believe that you have information that could lead investigators to locate the vehicle, please call the Salmon Arm RCMP Detachment at 250-832-6044 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1‐800‐222‐8477 (TIPS).
West says police and the victim would like to thank the motorist who did stop and gave the woman and her bicycle a ride to her vehicle which was parked near Highway 1.
