Richmond RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the driver involved in a pedestrian hit-and-run on Christmas Eve.

Police officers arrived at the intersection of Cook Road and Buswell Street for a collision involving a pedestrian around 4:25 p.m. on Dec. 24. The pedestrian was crossing in a marked crosswalk, with the signal, when according to a witness a vehicle suddenly turned eastbound onto Cook Road from Buswell Street and allegedly struck her.

Another witness said the vehicle initially stopped following the collision but then allegedly sped off eastbound on Cook Road towards Garden City Road.

The suspect vehicle is described as a grey hatchback believed to be a 2012 to 2015 Toyota Camry. Unfortunately, while a number of witnesses remained on scene and dash cam footage was provided, the licence plate of the vehicle involved is unknown.

We want to thank all of the individuals who remained on scene and assisted the elderly pedestrian. We recognize there may be other witnesses out there or someone with dash cam footage of the collision. If you have information please contact police, says Cpl. Adriana O’Malley, media relations officer for Richmond RCMP. As a driver in BC you are required to stop if you are involved in a collision. We are appealing to the driver to do the right thing and contact police.

Anyone who may have witnessed or have information regarding this incident is asked to call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 and quote file number 2021-35057. Should you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crimestoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit them online at www.solvecrime.ca.
