Chilliwack RCMP call on hit-and-run driver to come forward

Chilliwack RCMP say they’ve identified the kind of vehicle involved in a hit-and-run that left a man with leg and head injuries.

Chilliwack RCMP say they’ve identified the kind of vehicle involved in a hit-and-run two weeks ago, that left a man with leg and head injuries.

Now they’re asking the driver to “do the right thing” and step forward.

The incident occurred just after midnight on Saturday, March 2. Two men were walking west bound on the west side walk on Williams Street when a vehicle drove across the on-coming lane of traffic and jumped onto the curb striking one of the men.  The vehicle fled the scene and drove away east bound on Portage Avenue towards Menzies Street.

A 37-year-old Chilliwack man suffered a broken leg and head injuries, but will recover, police said.

“With the evidence gathered so far and through witness statements we have successfully been able to narrow down the specific type of vehicle involved,” said Cst. Greg Dykstra, of Chilliwack Municipal Traffic Services.  “It’s just a matter of time before we identify the driver so we are really hoping the driver does the right thing and comes forward on their own.”

Anyone who may have witnessed this accident or has any information regarding this incident, is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP Traffic Services at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
