The RCMP have made arrests in connection with hit-and-run incidents on Bell Island this summer.

On Aug. 19, a woman was knocked down by a car that left the scene. A short time later, two more women were knocked down, with one of them sustaining serious injuries.

The RCMP say two men were arrested Sunday evening.

A 42 year-old faces charges of failing to remain at the scene of an accident, impaired driving causing bodily harm, impaired operation of a vehicle and driving without valid insurance.

Police say other charges may be laid as the investigation continues.

The pair have a court date in November.
