UPDATED: Kamloops Mounties investigating fatal hit-and-run
UPDATE: The suspect, a 31-year-old man, turned himself in to police just before 4 a.m.
Kamloops Rural RCMP have also further identified the victim as a 64-year-old man.
Both are members of the Tk'emlups Indian Band.
Investigators believe the suspect driver had been drinking before the crash but, because of the delay between the collision and his arrest, they're having a hard time determining a level of intoxication.
Police are still looking for tips from anyone with information.

Mounties are in possession of the vehicle believed to have been involved, and it is being transported to the RCMP's Battle Street detachment for further investigation by forensic-identification investigators.
No suspect is in custody as of yet.
Aird said no further details about the victim are available pending notification of next-of-kin.
