Chilliwack teen hit by car in stable condition

A 17-year-old Chilliwack girl was in stable condition Saturday after she was struck by a vehicle near the intersection of First Avenue and Charles Street in Chilliwack.

Chilliwack RCMP said the driver of the vehicle, a 71-year-old Chilliwack woman, stopped and remained at the scene of the 6 p.m. accident until police arrived.

The victim was airlifted to hospital suffering "serious" injuries, but was listed in stable condition, police said.

A police investigation continues.

Meanwhile, police are reminding pedestrians to be aware of their surrounding, to use the sidewalk if one is available, to always look both ways before crossing the street and to wear highly visible or light-coloured clothing when walking at night.
