Police trying to determine the movements of Danny James Noble, 23, before he was struck by a vehicle on Highway 97A near Powerhouse Road.

Police have released the name of an Enderby man killed while walking on Highway 97A north of Armstrong Tuesday.

They’re also trying to determine the movements of Danny James Noble, 23, just prior to Noble being struck by a vehicle on the highway near Powerhouse Road.

“Several people have called in about perhaps seeing him earlier in the evening,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “Police are still asking anyone who either witnessed the accident or saw him walking on the road prior to 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday night to please call them.”

Molendyk said early indications are that Noble was walking on the traveled portion of the highway when he was hit by the northbound vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle from Enderby, plus a friend of his following, stopped and phoned police.

They also began administering CPR.

“When our officers arrived they located a man laying in the ditch,” said Molendyk. “Our officers administered CPR until the ambulance arrived and transported the victim to Vernon Jubilee Hospital where he later died of his injuries.”

Molendyk said the driver and the victim were acquaintances in Enderby.

“The driver is cooperating with the investigators,” said Molendyk, who added that it was raining at the time of the collision.

The RCMP is asking anyone who might have seen Noble walking along the highway Tuesday night prior to this accident to please call them at 250-545-7171.
