Comox Valley RCMP are still looking for help from the public, seeking witnesses, dashcam footage, or surveillance footage in relation to a fatal hit and run last Thursday.

“We are asking anyone who was travelling along the Comox Valley Parkway, or surrounding area, to carefully review their dashcam footage and come forward if they were in the area during this time and may have captured something. The vehicle involved is suspected to have some new front-end damage.” said Constable Monika Terragni, Comox Valley RCMP Media Relations Officer.

“We are also asking that anyone with any information that may be relevant to our investigation come forward, this includes the driver of the vehicle involved in the collision, any passengers, and anyone who might have noticed some very recent, potentially suspicious, damage to a vehicle.”

Just before 11pm Thursday, RCMP responded to a report of an injured cyclist on the Comox Valley Parkway near Minto Road in Courtenay. The cyclist was located by a passerby who called 911 for help.

Emergency Health Services paramedics and Cumberland Fire Department firefighters responded, however after being transported to hospital, he died as a result of his injuries.

Investigators were working to identify the exact time the incident happened.

The victim was riding a red and white Specialized bike along the parkway at the time of the collision.

Anyone with information, dashcam or surveillance footage, is asked to call the Comox Valley RCMP and refer to file 2024-1916.
