Police looking for hit and run driver

Red car struck a man who was crossing 207th Street at Westfield Avenue in Maple Ridge on Monday

Ridge Meadows RCMP are looking for the driver of a car who struck a teenager Monday evening in Maple Ridge and fled the scene.

The 18-year-old man was hit by a red car around 5 p.m. as it turned left off Westfield Avenue onto 207th Street.

The young man was knocked onto the hood of the car then tumbled onto the road but police allege the car drove away and the driver never stopped to ensure the pedestrian was not injured.

“The victim has told police he waited for a truck to make a left turn off of Westfield before he proceeded onto 207th Street, and he did not see the car until it hit him,” said Sgt. Dale Somerville .

“What is particularly troubling is this driver did not stop to check on the young pedestrian, as it is quite obvious the driver would have known the collision had occurred.”

Police are looking for a red car, possibly a two-door older style coupe, missing the driver’s side mirror.

The driver is described as a woman with long blond hair and a thin build.

• Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP at 604-463-6251 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
