I did mention Celeste Jones died in Scarborough. That video clip should not have been attached to the Kelowna news item. I do think the police are still actively investigating this hit and run and are requesting witnesses to contact them.

From the article:

The vehicle involved in the collision did not remain on the scene. However, an arrest was made shortly afterwards. Police are now seeking more information on the vehicle's movements.

The injured pedestrian has since been released from hospital and has support from family, police say.

“The vehicle involved was described to be an older model grey Ford Focus sedan and was last seen driving eastbound up Bernard Avenue,” says Cpl. Meghan Foster.

I'm not certain that particular sentence was in there originally ... seems strange that more than one of us would miss it ...

Articles are constantly updated but the original RCMP release was posted and that has not changed. It was acknowledged an arrest was made.

They have changed the story, and it makes more sense now.
Thanks everyone.
When I spoke to my friend earlier today he thought the driver may still be in prison, although who knows :135:
If they are looking for more information it hopefully means it will be going to trial soon.
I would think that everyone involved would like to see that before Christmas, and hopefully go about enjoying their lives as much as possible.

Absolutely devastating. RIP little one.

Hope we find out the details soon. Was it just a horrible tragic accident, or someone who was driving like a maniac?

It is terrible.. I hope the parent or parents were with this little one and they were in a cross walk. I cannot imagine losing sight of a toddler and having them run into the road and being killed.. The guilt this family would experience would be even worse I would think than losing their little one. Either way its terrible but lets hope for the least terrible and the parents did everything right and won't live with the guilt.. Please don't mistake my comment on this as wanting to assign blame at all, I am not and even if it was a case of an accident from a parent not watching properly or the child just ran off, these things do happen. I just pray this wasn't the case so the parents can have some peace eventually.

Seemed clear to me - it was a terrible accident and hope the parents weren't negligible.

My condolences as well. Losing a child is so tragic no matter the age and the sweet angelic face of that toddler is gut wrenching.

What a horrible incident. R.I.P. little one, best wishes to the family and the first responders. A call like that can leave memories that never go away.

I feel so badly for that family. I couldn't - and don't want to - even imagine the grief and loss . . . :cry:
