Surrey RCMP are looking for any witnesses in a Sept. 19 hit-and-run where a pedestrian was struck and left on the roadside, anguishing in pain for two hours before being discovered.
According to police, 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 on the road by a passing motorist. That victim was rushed to hospital with serious injuries.
The Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT), who 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. But investigators are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to contact them.
“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 Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann.
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.
