The Nanaimo RCMP have seized a vehicle in connection with an ongoing hit and run investigation that resulted in an adult woman being sent to hospital with significant injuries. Her dogs, which she and her husband were walking at the time, were also injured. The incident occurred at approximately 3:30 PM on March 4, 2022, on Lorenzen Lane which is located at the end of Superior Road, in Lantzville.
