A 57-year-old man was struck by a SUV, which fled the scene, in Salmon Arm on Thursday (Dec. 30).
According to Sgt. Scott Lachapelle of the Salmon Arm RCMP, the man was hit around 6 p.m. while crossing a crosswalk at the intersection of 5th Avenue SW and 3rd Street SW.

The man who was struck was transported to hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries.
