Driver of black vehicle sought by Chilliwack RCMP

The person behind the wheel of a black SUV is being sought for questioning after Chilliwack RCMP learned of a pedestrian down on Sunday afternoon.

A black SUV type vehicle reportedly failed to stop at a crosswalk and struck the man, sending him to hospital.

The pedestrian had been walking along Yale Road, crossing at the crosswalk near the Petro-Pass and Travel Lodge at about 1:30 p.m.

He told police he saw a black SUV approaching the intersection, and the driver then failed to stop for him. The pedestrian suffered minor scrapes and bruises from the collision.

The vehicle could be a black Mazda Tribute or a black Honda Pilot with B.C. plates, according to the police report.

"This happened on a bright suuny day and we are hoping that someone saw the incident occur," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.

Call RCMP at 604-792-4611 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
