The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is trying to locate a driver who was involved in a hit-and-run collision that critically injured a 58-year-old female pedestrian on Tuesday night (Sept. 29).

The incident took place just after 7 p.m. while the woman was reportedly in a crosswalk in front of West Oaks Mall at 32700 South Fraser Way.

He said the pedestrian is currently in critical, but stable, condition in hospital.

“AbbyPD is asking for the driver of the vehicle, who is aware of what occurred, to do the right thing and come forward and speak with investigators,” Dyck said.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, stopped to render assistance or who has dash-cam video of the West Oaks Mall parking lot between 6:50 and 7:10 p.m. on Tuesday is asked to contact the APD at 604-859-5225 or text 222973 (abbypd).
