POLICE – It wasn’t the blue car that struck victim in fatal hit-and-run

First it was a Dodge Neon, then it was a “cobalt blue” car, and now it isn’t.

Kamloops RCMP said today (Oct. 30, 2018) they “are learning more” about who was in the area of a fatal hit-and-run on Oct. 20 at 1:30 a.m. on Seymour Street West.

“It appears that the blue car that was featured in a recently released surveillance video did not strike the victim, but they may have been a key witness to what happened that morning and police would like to speak with the occupants who were in the car at that time,” the statement said. .

Police are analyzing several different videos from various areas of downtown Kamloops to determine what exactly happened and to identify the vehicle that struck the victim.

“Numerous vehicles are seen in the area at the time of the collision and investigators continue to work towards identifying the suspect car and any potential witnesses.”

RCMP are asking that the occupants of the blue car contact them.  “Or, if you were in the downtown area on Oct. 20 around 1:30 a.m., either as a pedestrian or in a vehicle, contact the police. You may have vital information that will help officers identify the suspect vehicle.”

Contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or, if your wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
