Grindrod pedestrian dies from injuries

The man found laying on the side of a North Okanagan highway earlier this month has died.

John Thomas, 59, of Enderby, died Nov. 19.

Thomas was found shortly before 8:30 p.m. of Nov. 9 on the side of Highway 97A suffering from injuries that police believe appear to be the result of a hit-and-run accident.

“The investigation into this accident is continuing,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “Several people have been interviewed around the events of this case.”

The police are again asking anyone who might know anything about this accident or were in the area and saw a man hitchhiking around this time to please contact them.

The file is being investigated by Trans Canada East Traffic Services (Revelstoke) and their direct line is 250-805-2111.
