Elderly woman injured in Dawson Creek hit and run

At that point a second vehicle reversed and hit the door and pinned the woman's legs between it and the frame of the car. The woman is now receiving treatment at the Dawson Creek Hospital for non-life threatening injuries to her lower legs.

Although the driver of the second vehicle "did the right thing" according to police and helped her back into the vehicle, he did not meet her at the hospital to exchange information. RCMP say the incident is being treated as a hit and run since the suspect did not turn up at the hospital.

The second vehicle is described as a light coloured SUV with a possible Saskatchewan licence plate. There may also be blue paint transfer on its rear bumper. The driver is being asked to call the RCMP at 250-784-3700 or 9-1-1 to identify himself. If you have information on the location of the SUV, contact the RCMP.
