Surrey hit-and-run leaves two pedestrians with broken limbs

SURREY — Surrey Mounties are asking the public to help them find the driver of a car involved in a hit-and-run Sunday night in Newton that broke the legs of two pedestrians walking through a marked crosswalk.

Around 9 p.m. Surrey RCMP were called to the intersection of 72nd Avenue and 130th Street by paramedics tending to a man and a woman in their mid-20s suffering from “lower body injuries” involving several fractures, according to a news release.

They had been walking across 72nd Ave. in the marked crosswalk on the east side of the intersection when a northbound car – described as possibly a white or light-coloured Mazda – hit both of them as it turned east onto 72nd, the release stated.

Mounties say that after hitting the couple the car didn’t stop, but sped off to the east along 72nd Ave.

Both victims were sent to the hospital, where they were treated for their non-life-threatening injuries, the release stated.

Police are still looking for the driver and their vehicle, which would have damage to its front end and hood.

Mounties are asking anyone who may have seen the hit-and-run or the light Mazda-like vehicle speeding away from the scene to call the Surrey detachment at 604-599-0502 or leave an anonymous tip through CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
