A man from West Kelowna is facing numerous charges after being arrested for a hit and run involving two kayakers on Sunoka Beach near Summerland this summer. Penticton RCMP are recommending the unnamed fifty-eight year old man face charges of dangerous operation of a vessel causing bodily harm and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.
