Clinton RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in furthering its criminal investigation into a pedestrian involved hit and run collision Friday evening.

On May 22, 2020 at approximately 7 p.m., Clinton RCMP responded to a report of an adult male pedestrian discovered laying injured in the middle of the 7500-block of Meadow Lake Road in Canoe Creek BC. Frontline officers arrived on scene to find BC Emergency Health Services providing emergency medical attention to the seriously injured pedestrian.
