Lethbridge police have charged a 24-year-old man in connection with an alleged hit-and-run one week ago.
Dylan Sokol was arrested Wednesday following a “high risk incident” and charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm, operating a motor vehicle while prohibited and causing an accident resulting in bodily harm.
Lethbridge police were called to Chinook Regional Hospital on Aug. 12 after a 37-year-old man was taken there with injuries sustained from a hit-and-run.
The man, along with a female acquaintance, were driving along 10th Street North at the intersection of 3rd Avenue North when they were involved in an “altercation” with a red Volkswagen Jetta, according to police.
Both vehicles pulled over and a confrontation ensued, culminating with the man being run over. The woman drove him to hospital and he was later transported to Calgary.
He remains in hospital in serious but stable condition.
Police located the red Jetta and identified Sokol as the driver, but initial attempts to locate him were unsuccessful. Lethbridge police issued a warrant for Sokol’s arrest.
On Wednesday, officers dealt with a “high risk incident” in the 100 block of Lafayette Boulevard, where they arrested Sokol.
