A 39-year-old Victoria man was hit by a truck and dragged down Pandora Street on Sunday night after an altercation with the driver.

VicPD officers were called to Quadra Street and Pandora Avenue around 10:30 p.m. and found a man lying in the street in excruciating pain.

“Witnesses stated the man had been run over by the rear tires of the truck,” said Const. Mike Russell.

The man was rushed to Victoria General Hospital with serious injuries, but is now recovering at home, Russell said.

Police located the white truck around 1 a.m. on Burnside Road, just east of Balfour Road, and the driver admitted to involvement in the incident.

The investigation continues and charges have not yet been laid, Russell said.
