A 26-year-old Maple Ridge man suffered life-threatening injuries Monday after being hit by a car on Lougheed Highway.
The man was crossing the highway from north to south in the 20800-block of Lougheed Hwy. when he was struck by an eastbound car. He was not in a crosswalk when the incident occurred.
The area has limited street lighting, noted Ridge Meadows RCMP civilian spokesman Dan Herbranson, but weather was not a factor.
The driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with police, and had not been consuming alcohol.
The police Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service was called to investigate.
The highway was closed in both directions for several hours for the investigation.
Ridge Meadows RCMP are asking for the public’s help locating a forklift that was stolen from a Pitt Meadows business either July 14 or 15.
The 1988 TCM forklift has dual front tires and is yellow.
Police didn’t say from where the forklift was stolen or how it was removed from the business.
