An Enderby man was taken to hospital with serious injuries Friday after apparently being struck by a vehicle near Grindrod.

Police were alerted to the presence of a 59-year-old Enderby man lying on the shoulder of Highway 97A, near Grandview Bench Road, at 8:20 p.m.

"The man was located unconscious by a passing motorist," said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

The injured man was originally taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with serious injuries to his head and torso, and was later transferred to Kelowna General Hospital.

"We suspect the man may have been struck by a passing vehicle as he walked adjacent to the highway," said Molendyk.

The incident remains under investigation.
