Family marks one-year anniversary of fatal pedestrian hit and run by appealing for witnesses

RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation is continuing to investigate a hit and run collision that claimed the life of Sharon Mitchell.

On Tuesday, investigators and her family issued a renewed public appeal for information.

On October 1, 2018. at 8:45 p.m., 69-year-old Sharon Mitchell was in the marked crosswalk at the intersection of 68th Avenue and 138th Street in her wheelchair, when she was struck and killed by a southbound vehicle. The driver of the vehicle did not stop after the collision and left the scene.
Investigators believe there are people in the community who have information which could help advance this investigation.

“It can be difficult to come forward to police, particularly after so much time has passed,” said Cpl. Lucy Shorey, Criminal Collision Investigation Team. “While nothing can take away the grief the family has suffered over last year, witnesses can bring some comfort to this family by assisting us in solving this case. We are also appealing directly to the driver. It’s never too late to come forward to explain your side of the story.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. If you wish to make an anonymous report, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or
