By Kamloops This Week

The family of a man seriously injured in a hit-and-run crash in Sun Peaks last weekend is offering a reward for information about who is responsible.

A 30-year-old man was walking in a group of people at about 3 a.m. on Sunday when he was struck by a pickup truck. The victim suffered serious head and lower-body injuries and remains in hospital.

The truck is described as an older-model Chevrolet S-10 that is dark in colour.

Kamloops Rural RCMP investigators issued a plea for information.

“As they further this investigation, they are asking that the driver contact the local detachment and make this tragic event right,” Staff Sgt. Doug Aird said in a press release.

“It is strongly felt this individual has reached out to someone and police are asking that any information be passed on to police or Crime Stoppers.”

The victim’s family has posted a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers. For the $10,000 reward, call the Lambert and Williams Law Corporation in Victoria at 1-250-589-2174.
