Bank account opened for woman hit by car
A family friend of a woman seriously injured after being struck by a car while crossing a North Kamloops intersection last month has set up a bank account to accept donations for the victim’s family.
Chloe Ardiles, 20, was hit as she crossed Fortune Drive at Fort Avenue on Sept. 7. She has been in a medically induced coma since.
Police have performed a mechanical inspection of the vehicle, which was being driven by an 84-year-old Kamloops man, but are awaiting a final report.
Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said investigators are also awaiting a report from an RCMP traffic analyst.
No charges have been laid against the driver as of yet.
Family friend Diane Czyzewski said she has opened an account at the Bank of Montreal in Ardiles’ name (transit 07200, account 3974-130).
