The Surrey RCMP is looking for any witnesses to an incident where a 17-year-old pedestrian was struck by a vehicle in the early hours of Sept. 19 in the Clayton area of Surrey.
“Investigators would like to talk to anyone who may have witnessed this collision or anyone who may have seen the Pathfinder driving prior to the collision,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann.
Between 3:50 a.m. and 4:10 a.m., a vehicle was travelling westbound on Fraser Highway after leaving the 20300 block of Fraser Highway in Langley. The vehicle, a brown, 2004 Nissan Pathfinder, struck and seriously injured a pedestrian in the 19400 block of Fraser Highway.
Approximately two hours later the pedestrian was spotted roadside by a passing motorist and transported to hospital.
The Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT), which investigates all serious injury and fatal motor vehicle collisions in the city, is leading this investigation.
The driver of the Pathfinder has been identified and is speaking to police. Investigators are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to the incident to contact them.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
