Pedestrian, 53, dies after hit and run by SUV driver in east Vancouver

January 24, 2019 - 8:37 AM

VANCOUVER - A 53-year-old woman has died in a Vancouver hospital after being struck by an SUV driver who did not remain at the scene.

Police say the woman died from critical injuries a day after she was hit last Friday while crossing an east Vancouver street.

Police say she was with her husband and the two were crossing with the light, in a marked crosswalk, when the SUV sped through the intersection.

The man was not hit but police say the impact threw the unnamed woman a significant distance.

During a news conference last week, Const. Jason Doucette said debris from the car, including a front grille, indicates the suspect vehicle is likely to be a BMW SUV with obvious front-end damage.

Doucette urged the driver to do the right thing and come forward.
