Driver crushes young woman’s ankle

Three pedestrians were hurt in two separate hit and runs in the last few weeks in Langley.

On Oct. 25, at about 6:45 p.m. two teenaged girls were crossing the intersection at 88th Avenue and 202nd Street, heading south in the crosswalk, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

They were hit by a car making a left turn from 88th onto 202nd Street.

Both were sideswiped and knocked to the ground. 

BC Ambulance paramedics gave the two medical attention at the scene, and fortunately they were not hurt badly. Neither  was taken to the hospital.

The car in this incident was a newer model white SUV or van, Marks said.

On Oct. 29, two young women were walking east on the south shoulder of 32nd Avenue in the 20200 block, in Brookswood.

The suspect vehicle in this case was also driving eastbound, said Marks. The truck stopped just past the young women, then backed up onto the shoulder. It ran over one of the young women’s ankles.

When she screamed, the driver sped off heading east. The victim required surgery and is now recovering from the hit and run.

The vehicle is a white Dodge or Ford pickup with mud tires and bush lights on top of the cab, said Marks. It was clean at the time of the incident.

There were two people in the truck, Caucasian men in their 20s.
