A 20-year-old man was injured in a possible hit-and-run in Mission last Tuesday (March 26).

Mission RCMP say the incident occurred near the intersection of 7th Avenue and Blott Street at approximately 8 p.m.

Police say the man exited the #32 bus and walked a short distance before “an unknown event occurred”. He was left in the middle of the roadway with non-life-threatening injuries but made it back to his residence to receive help from family.

The 20-year-old is expected to make a full recovery from his injuries.

“This is a bit of a strange occurrence, as the victim has very little memory of the incident,” Mission Cpl. Harrison Mohr said in a news release.

“However, based on the man’s injuries and other evidence, it appears as though he was struck by a vehicle on the north side of the intersection of 7th Avenue and Blott Street. We’re asking the driver of that vehicle, or anyone who saw what happened, to call Mission RCMP, so we can help determine what happened.”

Police say the victim was wearing a grey and black jacket, a grey hoody and blue jeans at the time.

Those with information are urged to contact Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161.
