Victoria police are asking for the public’s help with locating a vehicle and driver involved in a hit-and-run that sent an elderly man to hospital Sunday afternoon.

The man was struck in the 1300 block of Hillside Avenue between 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. It’s believed the vehicle, described as small and grey, was driven by a lone male, who left the scene immediately without stopping to check on the victim.

The senior was assisted at the scene by a man and woman who drove him to his home. He was later taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or know the good Samaritans who offered assistance is asked to call 250-995-7654.
