Langley RCMP are looking for witnesses to a hit and run collision that injured a 12-year-old Aldergrove boy on Jan. 27.

At about 3:40 p.m. that day, the boy was walking north on 272nd, and crossed Fraser Highway with the WALK sign illuminated, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

An eastbound black truck hit the boy.

The boy suffered minor injuries and did not require medical attention, said Largy.
