Bystanders found the injured man in the southbound lane and called RCMP.

Police say a 74-year-old man from Fort St. John, B.C., had both head and shoulder injuries and was conscious but not alert. The man was transported by ambulance to a local hospital in serious condition.

Witnesses told police there were foggy conditions in the area at the time and police said the driver of what they believe is a “white coloured large truck” may have not been aware they hit someone.

At the scene, police found a broken side mirror and say that it could compare to the ones a Ford F350 would have.
