Three youths have turned themselves over to Abbotsford Police for their part in a hit-and-run incident that took place early Saturday.

The hit-and-run occurred at 1 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of George Ferguson Way and Gladwin Road.

Prior to the collision, three teenaged friends were seated at a bus stop bench when a white pickup truck with silver rims approached their position eastbound on George Ferguson Way. The pickup truck slowed and the occupants began throwing eggs at the girls.

A 17-year-old walked toward the truck to determine why the driver and passenger were doing this. The girl was run over when the truck accelerated. The vehicle continued despite the impact and injury to the victim.

The girl was transported to hospital and received treatment for fractures to both legs.

The Abbotsford Police began an investigation to find the suspects.

At 6:30 Saturday evening, the three occupants, accompanied by their parents, surrendered to police.

The APD will be recommending charges of assault against the two passengers and a charge of hit and run causing bodily harm against the driver. The Dodge pickup truck involved in the collision has been seized.
