Surrey RCMP need help to solve November hit-and-run

SURREY — Police are still looking for the driver, and more witnesses, in connection with a hit-and-run crash in Whalley last November that left a 69-year-old woman with severe leg injuries.

She was struck down as she was walking at 92nd Avenue and King George Boulevard at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22nd

"A witness reported seeing a white or grey vehicle traveling northbound on King George Boulevard at a high rate of speed from the scene of the collision," Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said at the time. The suspect vehicle is believed to be a four-door sedan.

Sgt. Dale Carr said this week that now, almost five months after the hit-and-run crash, the victim says her life has been “forever changed.

“The victim still has limited mobility and requires medical treatment for her injuries multiple times a week,” Carr noted.

Const. Kelly Power of the Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Investigation Team said witnesses to a serious crash should stay at the scene until they’ve spoken to a police officer. “If you’re a driver involved in a motor vehicle incident, it is your duty to remain at the scene, exchange your information with the other drivers, and, as in this instance, render assistance if necessary.”

Police ask anyone with information about this particular hit-and-run crash to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
