Significant debris, including a driver-side mirror, were left behind
VANCOUVER Police are investigating a serious hit-and-run near Science World on Saturday night, which left a pedestrian with serious and life-altering injuries.
“This victim suffered significant trauma and will likely take months to recover,” said Sgt. Steve Addison on Wednesday. “Although the driver failed to stop and provide assistance, we believe there were a number of witnesses and people with information that can help us find the person responsible. We’re asking those people to come forward now.”
The victim, a 32-year-old woman, was crossing Quebec Street at Central Street around 10:20 p.m. on November 27 when she was struck by a vehicle that was heading south. Though the driver fled, significant debris, including a driver-side mirror, were left behind on the road.
“Based on the evidence recovered from the crime scene and information provided by eyewitnesses, we believe the vehicle was likely a grey Audi S4 or S5 built between 2009 and 2012,” said Addison. “We’re confident it’s just a matter of time before we locate the vehicle and identify the driver, so there’s still time for the person responsible to do the right thing and come forward.”
Police are asking anyone who lives near Science World, Yaletown, or the Olympic Village to check their home security cameras and contact police if they have video of the suspect vehicle. Eyewitnesses, anyone with information, or drivers with dash-cam video are also asked to come forward.
