Vancouver Police say the driver fled west without stopping; meanwhile, the victim is currently recovering in hospital.

“Although it’s early in the investigation, we believe the suspect’s vehicle is either a black pick-up truck or black SUV,” said VPD Constable Tania Visintin. “We need anyone with information or dash cam footage to call police.”

Vancouver Police are hoping that anyone with dash-cam footage from the area will contact their VPD Collision Investigation Unit at 604-717-3012.
