Langley RCMP are investigating two separate hit-and-runs involving teenage girls.
On Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 8:20 p.m., two teenage girls were walking in the 20200 block of 32 Ave. when a white Dodge or Ford pick up truck drove past the girls a short distance and stopped.
The vehicle began to reverse onto the shoulder of the road and ran over one of the girl’s ankles. She started to scream and the driver put the vehicle back into drive and fled eastbound.
The injured girl required surgery for her crushed ankle and is now recovering.
The vehicle is described as a white pickup truck, clean, with a lift kit, mud tires and bush lights on top of the cab. The two occupants of the truck are described as Caucasian men in the 20s.
The first hit and run took place in Walnut Grove on Oct. 25 around 6:45 p.m. at the intersection of 88 Ave. and 202 St. Two teenage girls were crossing 88 Avenue southbound in the crosswalk when they were struck by a vehicle making a left turn from 88 to 202 eastbound.
The two girls were sideswiped by the vehicle and knocked to the ground. The girls were treated at the scene by paramedics.
The vehicle is described as a newer model white SUV or van.
