Crime scene

An RCMP officer takes measurements at a crime scene in Skaha Lake Park in July.

UPDATE: Police say the crime scene at Skaha Lake Park is related to a hit-and-run on the beach around 4:20 a.m.

"The pedestrian suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment," RCMP Cpl. Heather Bradshaw said in a press release.

"A suspect vehicle was located nearby."

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Penticton RCMP detachment at 250-492-4300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.


Tire tracks appear to be the focus of a police investigation that has closed a portion of the Skaha Beach walking path this morning.

An RCMP officer at the scene declined to comment on investigation, except to say it does not involve a suspicious death.

He and a forensic identification specialist were measuring tire tracks on the grass and walkway near the Tickleberry's snack shop.

Nearby, a propane tank, stepladder and what appeared to be two light fixtures were stacked up against the fence surrounding the kids' Discovery Park.

Firefighters were dispatched to the area at 4:30 a.m. for a report of a motor-vehicle incident, according to their daily log.

More to come.
