Yet another person/cyclist hit by a vehicle admits it was entirely their own fault, not the vehicles driver, and there is video to prove that.

Sure, when road users do things correctly it's not newsworthy ...

But it would seem that in this case the pedestrian was using a marked crosswalk, and probably had triggered the flashing light ... sad that the person who made the mistake was driving under the influence, one drink may not seem like a lot but it can have such a knock-on affect that lives are devastated ...

Now they are acting like they never caught the driver or found the car.

Two hit and runs on the same day at the same intersection?

Not sure - here's the one involving a man that was transported to hospital:

File # 2019-51287

A pedestrian continues to recover from serious injuries in hospital after being struck by a motor vehicle that failed to remain at the scene of the collision Saturday evening in Kelowna.

On August 17, 2019 at 6:44 p.m., RCMP received a report of a hit and run pedestrian involved collision near the intersection of Bernard Avenue and Lakeview Street in Kelowna. The Ford sedan involved in the collision did not stop at the scene and was later located by police along Westside Road in West Kelowna.

It was heartening to see countless bystanders stop to provide assistance and comfort to the pedestrian who lay injured in the roadway, states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesman for the Kelowna RCMP. We are now encouraging anyone who witnessed the collision unfold to contact police immediately with your information. Furthermore, if any motorist has any dash camera footage of the event, they are urged to contact the Kelowna RCMP immediately.

The pedestrian, a 20-year-old Kelowna man, was rushed to hospital in serious yet stable condition.

We would like to extend our appreciation to the astute members of the motoring public who spotted our notably damaged suspect vehicle, headed towards the William R. Bennett Bridge, further states Cpl. O’Donaghey.

The driver, a 23-year-old Kelowna man was taken into police custody. Investigators conducted an impaired driving investigation. He faces potential charges and is expected to appear in court at a later date.

If you witnessed the collision and have not yet spoken to police, you are asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP Municipal Traffic Section at 250-762-3300.

The Gobal video clip is regarding Celeste Jones from Scarborough, Ontario (she was 34) that was killed.

Maybe the driver of the Kelowna hit and run missed a court date and/or the RCMP are looking for further witnesses.

I find this news story another case of p--- poor reporting ? How can a hit & run on August 17 in Kelowna get mixed in with an incident in Ontario ?
The latest news report makes readers believe the police are looking for the vehicle & driver involved in the Kelowna hit & run which is not true at all, the driver was caught shortly after

The news report is -'not accurate' & the story should read that the police are looking for the driver because he failed to appear or whatever ?

Celeste Jones died after being hit by a car in Toronto https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2019/09/06/police-release-video-of-suspect-vehicle-in-hit-and-run-death-of-34-year-old-woman-crossing-sheppard-ave.html

Not sure why Global attached that video ... or the one lower about the hit-and-run in Chilliwack ...

I don't think there is a different collision that is being referred to here ...
