The province’s police watchdog is seeking two specific “key witnesses” to an incident last Friday when an elderly woman was struck by a police vehicle on Tyson Road.
The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. (IIOBC) has identified the following witnesses who may be able to provide valuable information into the investigation:
• A man with a mustache wearing a black baseball cap (with a logo on the front), a black vest, a short sleeve blue shirt, grey pants, and black shoes; and,
• A person wearing a red baseball cap, wearing a black jacket and red running shoes.
The two pedestrians were seen walking northbound on the west side of Tyson Road near Cumberland Avenue next to the Sardis Library at approximately 5:30 p.m. on Friday, March 30 at the time of the collision.
The incident that day in the 5800-block of Tyson Road involved a police vehicle and an elderly woman. She was taken to Chilliwack General Hospital in serious condition, but since that time an IIOBC spokesperson said her medical status has stabilized.
Witnesses are being asked to call the IIOBC at 1-855-446-8477.
