Vancouver Police are asking the driver who allegedly fled the scene of a pedestrian collision to come forward and turn themselves in.
According to police, shortly after midnight on March 19, two pedestrians were crossing Fraser Street near East 20th Avenue when they were struck by a vehicle travelling northbound on Fraser.

The driver of the vehicle did not remain on the scene.
The victims, a 25-year-old woman from Surrey and a 35-year-old man from Vancouver, were rushed to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The woman has since been released from hospital while the man remains in serious condition, according to police.
Police say that evidence collected at the scene “suggests that the outstanding vehicle is a grey or silver, 2014 or 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid Electric car.” It will likely have front-end damage, including a possible cracked headlight on the passenger side of the vehicle.
“Based on the evidence collected so far, we believe the driver should be aware that they hit the pedestrians,” says Sergeant Jason Robillard of the VPD, in the release. “We are appealing to the driver to do the right thing and come forward.”
Anyone who may have information about the collision, the vehicle or the driver is asked to contact police at 604-717-3012 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
