Chilliwack RCMP hunting for hit-and-run suspect

Owners of light blue Toyota Tercels are being visited by local police who are searching for a driver involved in a hit-and-run.

Chilliwack RCMP are looking for the driver of a light blue 1991 Toyota Tercel that hit and seriously injured a 37-year-old Chilliwack man March 2.

The unidentified man was walking west on Williams Street when the Tercel jumped the curb and struck him.

The car sped away east on Portage Avenue, in the direction of Menzies Street.

The Traffic Collision Investigation Team has a list of people owning light blue Tercels, and they’ve been knocking on doors.

“Hopefully some old school policing techniques will help us identify the owner,” says Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. “The opportunity is still there if the driver of this vehicle would like to turn themselves in, as it is only a matter of time before we knock on their door.”

Anyone who witnessed the hit-and-run or has any information to offer is asked to call Chilliwack RCMP Traffic Services at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
