The incident happened likely between 9 and 10 p.m. near the movie theatres.

The driver, described as an elderly man, made eye contact with the woman after hitting her, but drove away without offering assistance.

It wasn’t until around 1 a.m., when she started feeling nauseous and disoriented back at home, that she called for an ambulance.

Saanich police are looking for witnesses to the incident. There is no description of the car.

Anyone with information is asked to call Const. Shannon Ogilve at 250-475-4321.
