Ladysmith woman injured in alleged hit and run, RCMP locate vehicle

The Ladysmith RCMP are investigating after a woman was involved in an alleged hit and run two weeks ago.

The Ladysmith RCMP are investigating after a woman was involved in an alleged hit and run over a week ago.

The incident took place on Dec. 10 at approximately 5:30 p.m.

Police received a call about a Mustang on Dogwood Avenue that had front end damage, and while responding a woman phoned to say she had been involved in a hit and run.

“The victim was hit from behind on Davis Road just up from the MacDonald’s restaurant,” said Const. Tim Wang.

The woman, a local Ladysmith resident, was in her early 40s and suffered non life-threatening injuries.  She was transported to the local healthcare centre for further treatment.

Police recovered the vehicle, which had been abandoned, the next day and seized it as evidence in the investigation.

“Subsequently in the investigation, we’ve spoken to the registered owner and associates who the registered owner said he lent the vehicle out to ,” Wang said.

One of the individuals has admitted to police to being the driver of the vehicle.

“They claim they were leaving the vehicle abandoned because it got trapped in the snow,” Wang said.

Police are still sorting through evidence and charges are pending under the Motor Vehicle Act  and Criminal Code.
