A man is being treated in hospital for what police describe as severe injuries after a hit-and-run in Prince George on Labour Day.
According to RCMP, a man was found near the intersection of Highway 97 and Boundary Road following reports of a vehicle collision involving a pedestrian before 10:30 p.m. Monday night (Sept. 7).
Investigators found pieces of the vehicle or possible trailer near the scene, which Mounties say indicates the vehicle did not stop after hitting the victim and has noticeable damage.
Police say more evidence has led officers to believe the pedestrian was struck from behind while walking south on the southbound side of the road.
He was transported to hospital to be treated for severe injuries after paramedics tended to him on site.
RCMP are now asking the driver involved in the hit-and-run to come forward and speak with them on the incident.
