Another injury from massive bush party in Kamloops
There has been another injury stemming from a huge bush party this week that attracted 1,200 teenagers to a remote spot past Barnhartvale.
Kamloops RCMP originally reported the gathering on the night of June 18 and early morning of June 19 had resulted in an 18-year-old woman being treated at Royal Inland Hospital after being attacked with a liquor bottle.
Now, Mounties say the mother of a 17-year-old girl has reported that her daughter was run over while attending the party at Tree Flats on Scuitto Lake Forest Service Road.
As a result of interviews with two witnesses, Mounties have learned that, at about 1 a.m. on Tuesday, June 19, the girl was running and lost her footing. She tripped and a pickup truck drove over her, not stopping.
A witness told police it did not appear as though the driver knew he had run someone over.
The victim was driven back to Kamloops, where her mother then took her to hospital, where she was treated for a broken shoulder, a broken rib and a punctured lung.
Police only know the vehicle was a darker pickup truck, not modified in any way, with an open box.
Anybody with information is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
