Langley RCMP is looking for a driver who may have sped up before hitting a pedestrian at 197 Street and 78 Avenue on Thursday morning.

Around 7:20 a.m., a 67-year-old Langley man was walking south on 197 Street when he noticed a vehicle driving north towards him at apparently a high rate of speed, said Langley RCMP Const. Craig van Herk.

The pedestrian raised his arm and waved at the approaching vehicle in an attempt to get it to slow down.

"Rather than slow down, the vehicle continued towards the pedestrian striking his right arm. The vehicle then fled the area continuing north on 197 Street," said van Herk.

The victim sustained a broken wrist, broken finger and suffered a cut on his hand that required stitches.The suspect vehicle involved is described as an older model white Chevy Cavalier, possibly a two door. It has not been confirmed but the car may have some damage to the passenger side windshield.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. If you wish to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
