Oct 12 2012
A Cobble Hill man died after being struck by a car on Tuesday night.
Daniel Edward Verbitsky, 36, was walking on Hutchinson Road near Dougan Road about 8: 20 p.m. when he was hit by a westbound Ford Explorer.
Verbitsky was taken to Cowichan District Hospital and later transported to Victoria General Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
"The driver of the Ford Explorer, a 52-year-old male from the Cobble Hill area, remained on scene and has co-operated fully with police," said Shawnigan Lake RCMP spokesman Sgt. Rob Webb.
Neither alcohol nor speed appear to be factors, Webb said.
