A young boy hit by a car while skateboarding through an intersection Sunday is expected to survive and recover, Langley police say.
The boy was hit at the intersection of 64th Avenue and 202nd Street at about 1 p.m. on Sept. 8. A preliminary investigation suggests he was heading south across 64th against the light and was hit by an eastbound car heading through on a green light.
The youth was rushed to hospital by an emergency Air Ambulance flight, as he seemed to be seriously injured.
The boy did suffer head injuries and was in hospital on Monday, but his condition was already much improved, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The intersection was closed for some time so that investigators from the local RCMP and the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service could do their work.
Police are asking anyone who saw the crash and has not yet spoken to investigators to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
