Vehicle in Vernon allegedly failed to stop after collision; injuries non-life-threatening

A cyclist was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital for examination after being struck by a vehicle in an alleged hit-and-run incident.

The collision happened on Okanagan Avenue at 36th Street shortly before 9:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 6.

A man told Black Press at the scene that the cyclist had been westbound on Okanagan Avenue when he was clipped by a vehicle, which allegedly did not stop after the incident.
