RCMP investigating hit-and-run in Langford

Pedestrian injured after allegedly being struck by truck at corner of Peatt and Goldstream

West Shore RCMP have received a report of a pedestrian who was hit by what was described as a white Ford F250 with cabinets on the side. The alleged incident occurred between 6:30 and 6:45 a.m. Monday morning at the intersection of Peatt Road and Goldstream Avenue in Langford.

According to the RCMP, the pedestrian was initially crossing Peatt Road in the crosswalk when the truck that was turning left onto Peatt from Goldstream struck him with his driver side mirror. The driver of the truck did stop and asked the pedestrian if he was OK, but immediately drove away, heading south on Peatt Road.

The pedestrian subsequently went to Victoria General Hospital to be checked for a minor shoulder injury.

West Shore RCMP are asking the public’s assistance with this investigation. Spokesperson Const. Alex Berube said, We encourage the driver of that pickup truck to contact the West Shore RCMP traffic unit investigators. If anyone has information regarding this incident please contact our office at 250-474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
