OUR VIEW: Let’s find the gutless driver who killed Surrey’s Josefa Belcourt

Someone somewhere knows something. Do you know someone with a 2010 or 2011 grey Honda CRV? Do the right thing.

A man lost his wife – his best friend – at the hands of a gutless driver.

The person behind the wheel of the car believed to have killed her on March 14 drove away and police are hunting for him or her.

The couple, Vincent and Josefa Belcourt, had planned to start a bright new life together that day. But instead, she was killed.

We wonder how the driver can even look in a mirror – not for being involved in a crash, but for doing the cowardly thing and fleeing. How can you sleep at night knowing you’re responsible for someone’s life being taken – and their family members are left begging for justice?

In 2015, Surrey pedestrians were involved in 15 crashes with serious injuries and nine tragic fatalities.

Tragedy is tragedy, hit-and-run or not, but we are disgusted when drivers leave the scene, as happens so often in Surrey.

A simple message for the person who was behind the wheel that morning: Turn yourself in. As Vincent said Tuesday at RCMP headquarters, police are going to come knocking at your door.

And as Sgt. Alanna Dunlop said, “someone somewhere knows something.” Do you know someone with a 2010 or 2011 grey Honda CRV? Police believe it has front end damage.

Be on the look out. Let’s find this gutless driver.
