A woman is in hospital and a man has been arrested in a hit-and-run on the weekend in Surrey.
On Friday at about 8:45 p.m., a 56-year-old Surrey woman was walking south on 141A Street near 89 Avenue.
As there were no sidewalks, the woman was walking on the side of the road when a Honda Civic hit her from behind.
She suffered several abrasions and a break of both bones in her lower leg.
The car continued on its way.
Emergency crews arrived and took the woman to hospital, where she is expected to make a full recovery.
The Surrey RCMP Criminal Crash Investigation Team began to investigate and a few hours later found a damaged Honda Civic at 140 Street and 88 Avenue.
Just as they were preparing to call the registered owner, a woman called the police station and said her 20-year-old son told her he believed he hit a pedestrian.
He was subsequently arrested and charges are being considered.
Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said no matter what people think they might have hit, it’s their legal obligation to stop at the scene of an accident.
The investigation continues.
