A 15-year-old boy was struck by a vehicle Friday afternoon along Lougheed Highway in west Maple Ridge.

Multiple RCMP vehicles were called to attend just before 5 p.m. after reports of a pedestrian hit.

They arrived to find a pedestrian on the ground having been hit by a vehicle in the westbound curb lane 100 metre prior to the intersection, according to a report.

A black car in a westbound lane of Lougheed Highway had a smashed windshield as officers interviewed witnesses in the area of 203th Street, in front of West Gate Centre.

There was also visible blood on the road.

“The vehicle was approaching the intersection of 203rd street in a westbound lane on Lougheed Highway when the pedestrian, a 15-year-old boy, was struck,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Amanda Harnett.

An air ambulance took the boy to Royal Columbian Hospital.

Police said he has serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

“All parties are cooperating with police. The investigation continues,” Harnett said.
