The man is described as being 5’ 11”, average build, brown hair and was wearing a dark blue shiny ski jacket and blue jeans.

If anyone witnessed a pedestrian accident or any other incident that may explain how he sustained his injuries, please contact the Elk Valley RCMP at 250-425-6233 or Crime Stoppers at 1(800) 222-TIPS (8477).
