A Kamloops man who was charged last year in connection with a 2016 hit and run that left a jogger with serious injuries is slated to stand trial next month.
Joshua Joseph Pooli was first charged in March 2019. At the time, police said they matched DNA found inside an abandoned vehicle to Pooli’s profile.
The 30-year-old is facing one count each of failure to stop at the scene of an accident, dangerous driving causing bodily harm and possession of a stolen vehicle.
On Aug. 28, 2016, a woman jogging along West Athabasca Street on the Tk’emlups the Secwépemc reserve was struck by a vehicle, after which the driver left the scene.
Investigators found a stolen 2003 Buick Regal abandoned near the Halston Bridge and linked it to the crash.
Pooli’s four-day trial is slated to get underway on June 22.
