Surrey Mounties are asking for public help in solving a two-year-old hit and run case.
On Sept. 29, 2012 at about 8 p.m., a pedestrian was operating a leaf blower at the back entrance of the Dashmesh Darbar Sikh Gurdwara near 130 Street and 86 Avenue, when he was struck by a vehicle which fled the scene.
The victim suffered significant head injuries.
Jagdev Toor, 51, has since been released from the hospital, however he suffers from long-term, life-altering injuries from the incident.
Investigators have determined the suspect vehicle was reddish burgundy, with damage to the right, front bumper, fender and likely windshield.
Based on the evidence and skid marks on the roadway, the suspect vehicle also appeared to have been travelling in an eastbound direction.
At the time of the collision, prayer service had just been completed at the Gurdwara temple and a crowd of people were exiting the temple from the other side of the property.
“Based on the large volume of traffic in the area at the time, there is a high likelihood that somebody saw something that night,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said in a release. “We are hoping that someone with a key piece of information will help us solve this case and bring some closure to the victim.”
