Asian Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Port Co­quit­lam: A 71-year-old Port Co­quit­lam woman is in very se­ri­ous con­di­tion af­ter a col­li­sion in the 1900 block of United Boule­vard, Co­quit­lam, just af­ter 4:30 p.m. on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The 71-year-old pedes­trian was on the side­walk when she was struck by a pickup truck leav­ing a large park­ing lot. The col­li­sion was low-speed, there is no in­di­ca­tion of im­pair­ment, and the driver stayed at scene. Un­for­tu­nately, this col­li­sion is a prime ex­am­ple of why Novem­ber is Pedes­trian Safety Month, says Cor­po­ral Michael Mclaugh­lin with Co­quit­lam RCMP. Driv­ers need to be more alert in this dark and rainy sea­son. Pedes­tri­ans need to keep their eyes up and wear bright, re­flec­tive cloth­ing. No mat­ter who’s at fault, a pedes­trian will al­ways lose a col­li­sion with a ve­hi­cle. If you have any in­for­ma­tion that can help this in­ves­ti­ga­tion, call the Co­quit­lam RCMP non-emer­gency line at 604-945-1550, ask for the Crim­i­nal Col­li­sion In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team (CCIT) and quote file 2018-33744.
