Richmond RCMP is appealing for witnesses of a hit-and-run incident that sent a pedestrian to hospital on Jan. 12
Police said officers arrived at the 8500-block of Ackroyd Road, between Cooney and Arcadia roads, around 5:30 p.m. after receiving a report that a vehicle had hit a pedestrian and left the scene.
A man had just parked and gotten out of his vehicle when he was allegedly struck by a silver or gray 1990s model Toyota Corolla.
He was taken to hospital for treatment, but was later released.
According to the RCMP, the driver is described as an Asian female in her 50s and her vehicle is missing the side mirror on the passenger side as a result of the collision.
“Fortunately, the pedestrian wasn’t seriously injured,” said Cpl. Adriana Peralta, spokesperson for the Richmond RCMP.
“We want to remind the public that drivers are required to stop if involved in any type of collision. We are asking anyone who may have information to come forward.”
