The Elk Valley RCMP are asking for the public’s help after two men were injured in a hit and run on Monday.

“We are asking for assistance in locating a heavy set woman between 30 and 35 years old with collar length straight blond hair. The woman was driving a red 1998 to 2000 Dodge Dakota,” said Const. Sheena Fulton.

The suspect was involved in a hit and run that happened in the Elko area on Monday evening.

The victims had pulled over to the side of the road and were standing in front of the parked vehicle.

Fulton said that the suspect vehicle hit the parked car with such force that the two men were knocked into the ditch.

Both men sustained injuries. One suffered a broken nose and the other sustained abdominal injuries including bruising.

Fulton said the suspect did pull over momentarily to make sure the men were OK and then fled the scene.

The RCMP are also looking for a paramedic by the name of Mike, whose last name is unknown.

Mike helped provide medical assistance to the two men and is believed to have been a witness.

The RCMP is asking anyone with information to call 250-425-6233.
