Looking for witness in bike accident

Thanks offered to passerby who stopped after bike accident.

Dear Editor:

On Sunday, June 17, (Father’s Day) I suffered an accident while riding my bicycle along Kirk Road, Trout Creek.

As I was lying helpless in the middle of the road, a lady very kindly pulled her car over to the side of the road.

She asked if I needed assistance.

I declined as my husband was fetching his truck to take me to Penticton General Hospital.

As I was shaken up and in a lot of pain, I neglected to ask for this lovely lady’s name so that I could offer my thanks and allow her name to be used as a witness in the accident.

Now that I am a little more mobile I would like to express my appreciation.

I would ask this Good Samaritan to give me a call at 250-494-7288.
