Police on Vancouver Island are hoping to speak to the owner of an older model Chevrolet Suburban following a deadly hit and run.
According to an Oceanside RCMP press release, a brown 1991 Chevrolet Suburban with damage to the driver’s side headlight and bug screen has been identified as a “vehicle of interest” in a fatal hit and run that took place Saturday near Parksville.
The Suburban has green B.C. license plates with the number PD929F on them and was last seen on the 5:15 p.m. ferry from Duke Point to Tsawwassen on Oct. 10.

Oceanside RCMP say a woman was found dead in the grassy median along Inland Island Highway near the Alberni Highway interchange yesterday morning.
“Officers are continuing to investigate the circumstances around the woman’s death, however, early indications are she was the victim of a hit and run,” the release said.
However, a spokesperson with the Central Vancouver Island Traffic Services told CHEK Saturday that the woman was wearing dark clothing and appeared to have been struck and killed by a vehicle that did not remain on scene.
