A pedestrian was struck by a vehicle Sunday night (Oct. 4) in Abbotsford.
The crash occurred at about 9 p.m. in the area of South Fraser Way and Fairlane Street (between Bourquin Crescent and Ware Street) in central Abbotsford.
Initial reports indicate that the driver remained on scene. The condition of the pedestrian is not known at this time.
The Abbotsford News is awaiting more details from the Abbotsford Police Department (APD).
This is the second pedestrian collision in Abbotsford in less than a week. Last Tuesday (Sept. 29), a 58-year-old woman was struck by a vehicle while in a crosswalk in front of West Oaks Mall.
The woman was critically injured and remains in hospital in stable condition.
The driver fled the scene and, on Friday, police released a photo of the suspect vehicle – a silver van with tinted rear windows – as well as a description of the driver.
The man is described as 5’ 6” to 5’ 10”, 50 to 60 years old and with a medium build. He was unshaven at the time of the crash and was wearing tan pants.
Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225 or text abbypd (222973).
