Hit and Run Sends Man to Hospital

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 @ 11:22 AM

Prince George, B.C. – A late night hit and run has Mounties seeking the public’s help.

Prince George RCMP Cpl. Craig Douglass says just before 11 last night police received multiple reports of a motor vehicle collision involving a cyclist on Upland Street near the Highway 97 underpass.

“Emergency Services including the RCMP, attended the scene and located an adult male suffering from serious injuries. The man was transported to hospital for treatment.”

He says the vehicle or vehicles involved fled the scene.

If you have any information about this incident you are asked to call police at 250-561-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


Did the Bike have a Light ? Was it on ?
Did the Bike Rider have on his helmet ?
Did the Bike Rider have on Reflective gear ?
Was the Bike Rider riding in the Bike Lane ?
Maybe these Bike Riders showed have a Bike Licence
and The Bikes should be insured since they are on the road.
Was the Bike Rider Drunk or Stoned since he did not know how many Vehicles had hit him ?

    nice victim blaming.

    The driver leaving the scene would pretty well indicate that the cyclist was not at fault.

    Was the driver drunk or stoned. Seeing as the driver fled. I would say probably

Especially around 7-11 on 20th at night.. Bikers zooming in and out of traffic with no regard to safety. Need more patrols in that area

Was the automobile driver drunk, stoned, distracted, a wanted criminal?
Why did the driver flee?

Not appropriate to seemingly blame the bike rider.

    exactly. oneofakind sounds like a special kind of idiot.

1 out a 100 will stop at a stop sign.

    I know blaming the biker. leaving the accident seen is just a low thing to do.

The smoke was in their eyes….

So the first thing you do is to levy potential accusations against the cyclist because there some out there that ignore the rules of the road. This person is now laying in a hospital bed with serious injuries that my be of no fault of their own. Yet you completely disregard the only verifiable wrongdoing of this incident that someone in control of a motor vehicle hit someone and didn’t bother to show any compassion and left them laying on the road. Something seems wrong with your outlook.

Okay, the first post is considering how much contribution to the accident by the bike rider. Considering most of the bike riders seen in town at least 50% to the bike rider.

Good example of the attitudes bikers are facing. It is Ok to go green and bike, just don’t do it on the roads.

    Attitudes bike riders are facing, say what? No helmets, all over the road, no lights, riding against traffic, no stopping at lights or signs, no signalling.

    The question is how much did the biker contribute to the accident in the first place? I guess all riders are poor innocent much maligned innocents.
