File # 2020-430

Central Vancouver Island Traffic Services would like to extend thanks to the public and the media for assistance in locating the vehicle of interest in Saturday morning’s hit and run.

The owner of the vehicle that was subject of a news release on October 11, a 55-year-old man from Woss, BC turned himself into the Kelowna RCMP last night after seeing his truck on the news.

The investigation into the fatal hit and run is continuing, and no one has yet been charged.

Cst.Jeff Pelat CVITS lead investigator states, It has really been because of tips from the public received as a result of the media coverage that we have been able to locate this vehicle so quickly. Our focus now will be on preparing the investigation for charge assessment by the BC Prosecution Service, a process which could take many months to complete.
