Revelstoke RCMP seek driver after teenage cyclist hit by pickup
Revelstoke RCMP are asking a driver who struck a teenage cyclist and then left the scene to come forward.
The incident happened at the intersection of Boyle Avenue and Victoria Road on Monday, May 14 at about 4:30 p.m.
Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen said that a teenage male cyclist was riding in the intersection when he was struck by a pickup truck.
The boy was bruised and injured in the back and hip area. He was able to get home and was then taken to Queen Victoria Hospital for treatment. His bike also received minor damage.
The driver of the pickup truck did not stop at the scene of the incident. "There is a possibility that she was unaware that a collision had occurred," Olsen said.
