A woman sustained life-threatening injuries after being hit by a car this week, and Nanaimo RCMP are looking for a motorist who may be able to help with the investigation.

On Tuesday, Feb. 27, at 11 p.m., a woman was struck by a car while crossing in the 200 block of Nicol Street in Nanaimo and police stated in a press release on Friday, March 1, that they are trying to identify the driver and registered owner of a white pickup truck that was spotted in the area. The person may be able to give witness evidence in relation to the crash, say RCMP.

The press release noted that the driver of the car remained on scene after the incident. RCMP have been able to determine the vehicle was headed south on Nicol Street, in front of the MGM Restaurant, when the collision occurred. The victim was not in a crosswalk and was trying to cross four lanes. It was raining at the time and the victim was wearing dark clothing, the press release noted.

Alcohol or drug impairment on the part of the driver have been ruled out.

The driver of the pickup, or anyone with information on the driver, is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP’s non-emergency line at 250-754-2345, citing file No. 2024-6277.
