Did you see pedestrian get hit by SUV in Parksville on Nov. 14?

Sixty-one-year old man suffered non-life-threatening injuries after being propelled over the hood of the vehicle

Police are seeking information on a hit-and-run accident that left a 61-year-old Parksville man with non life-threatening injuries on Nov. 14.

At approximately 4 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 14, Oceanside RCMP were called to the scene of a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian at the corner of Highway 19A and McCarter Street in Parksville.

They found the victim suffering from pain and soreness. The man said he was crossing McCarter northbound, in a marked crosswalk, and had taken approximately three steps when he was struck by a white SUV turning right from McCarter onto the highway.

The victim was propelled over the hood and landed on the ground, RCMP said in a news release. The SUV continued through its turn and initially pulled over, but left the scene before checking on the injured pedestrian or exchanging information.

Although police did speak with a number of witnesses at the scene, descriptions of the suspect vehicle were vague, the RCMP release noted. It was described as “an older model, boxy, white and larger” sport-utility vehicle.

Anyone with information on the vehicle or other aspects of this incident are asked to contact Const. Kasunich of Oceanside RCMP, at 250-248-6111.
