SURREY â€” 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 â€œforever changed.
â€œThe victim still has limited mobility and requires medical treatment for her injuries multiple times a week,â€ Carr noted.
Const. Kelly Power of the Surrey RCMPâ€™s Criminal Investigation Team said witnesses to a serious crash should stay at the scene until theyâ€™ve spoken to a police officer. â€œIf youâ€™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.â€
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.
