Langley RCMP on hunt for hit-and-run driver

A 19-year-old Surrey woman was seriously injured when she was struck by a vehicle in Langley on Thursday night

Langley RCMP are asking for the public’s help to find a hit-and-run driver, following a collision on Thursday night that seriously injured a 19-year-old Surrey woman.

The victim was struck at around 10:40 p.m. on April 18, as she walked east along the south side of 72 Avenue, near 197 Street. The vehicle left the scene, but another pedestrian heard the injured woman’s  cries and called for help.

B.C. Ambulance crews responded and took the woman to hospital. She had serious injuries to both her head and lower body.

The vehicle would have received significant damage as a result of the collision, police say.

Langley RCMP’s traffic section is asking the driver of the vehicle to come forward. They also would like anyone who may have witnessed the collision or has other information — such as knowledge of a vehicle with recent front-end damage — to contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers.
