The woman injured in a Campbell River hit-and-run has died, the family confirmed Monday evening.
Fifty-nine-year-old Kelly Kafka, who was from Woss, had been in a medically-induced coma at the Victoria General Hospital. She was struck by a vehicle at 9:15 p.m. on Feb. 28 by a vehicle that failed to stop in the 1800-block of the Island Highway.
At the beginning of March, police said the vehicle involved had been identified, located and seized. The suspect who was driving the vehicle was also identified and spoke to police. Police said the investigation is ongoing and a report to Crown Counsel is being completed. Investigators anticipate the report will be submitted within a few weeks.
Police did not identify the victim in the collision but family confirmed it was Kafka.
Family spokesperson Janet Noble said Kafka succumbed to her injuries Sunday morning and all family members have been notified. She also said the family wants everyone to know Kafka “gave it a good fight.”
