File # 2022-23886

The Kelowna RCMP is investigating a motor vehicle collision that left one man injured.

At 3:35 a.m. this morning, the Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision near a business in the 400 block-area of Banks Road. While on route, officers learned that a garbage truck had struck an individual who may have been sleeping in the area near garbage bins.

When officers arrived on scene, they located the truck and driver. The individual who had been struck, a 26-year-old man, had already left the area and was located by officers a short distance away. The man was transported to hospital for serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

The investigation into the cause of this collision is underway and Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement (CVSE) has been engaged, states Cpl. Tammy Lobb, Media Relations Officer for the Kelowna RCMP. The Kelowna RCMP continues to work closely with our partners at the City of Kelowna Community Safety Unit and Bylaw Services to support vulnerable individuals in our community.

The investigation is continuing.
