An arrest warrant has been issued in connection to a Lethbridge hit-and-run that sent a man to hospital in serious condition.

Dylan Ivan Sokol, 24, has been charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm, operating a motor vehicle while prohibited and causing an accident resulting in bodily harm.

The charges come after a 37-year-old man was admitted to Chinook Regional Hospital with injuries sustained in a hit-and-run on Aug. 12, the Lethbridge Police Service said in a news release.

The man had pulled over after an altercation with another driver, who was in a red Volkswagen Jetta, at the intersection of 10th Street N. and Third Avenue N.

Anyone with information about Sokol's whereabouts is asked to call police at 403-328-4444 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
