RCMP Seek Witnesses to Hit and Run Collision


On July 18th, Vernon North Okanagan RCMP responded to a report of a hit and run collision in the 3900 block of Okanagan Ave, Vernon BC. Occupants of the home advised police they heard the thunderous sounds of the crash just before 9pm, and felt the home shake. No one in the home was injured as a result of the incident. 

The yard received extensive damage to a fence and landscaping, while the home received what appeared, at the time, to be minor damages. 

Witnesses report seeing a dark coloured sedan fleeing the area at a high rate of speed just moments after the incident occurred, says RCMP Cst. Kelly Brett. Given the damages to the property, the suspect vehicle will most likely have significant damage to its front end and will be missing the driver side mirror
