Asian Journal - - BRITISH COLUMBIA -

Rich­mond: Shortly be­fore 6 p.m. on Jan­uary 8, Rich­mond RCMP re­sponded to the area of St. Al­bans Road and Gen­eral Cur­rie Road for re­ports of a pedes­trian struck.

A 2018 Nis­san SUV, driven by a 66-year old man from Rich­mond, col­lided with a pedes­trian, a 31-year old woman vis­it­ing Canada. The woman suf­fered life-threat­en­ing in­juries and was rushed to hos­pi­tal by emer­gency med­i­cal per­son­nel. The driver of the SUV has been co­op­er­a­tive with po­lice.

The area sur­round­ing the col­li­sion was cor­doned off for sev­eral hours while po­lice in­ves­ti­gated. Al­co­hol or drugs are not con­sid­ered fac­tors in this col­li­sion. The Rich­mond RCMP Crim­i­nal Crash In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team (CCIT) has as­sumed con­duct of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and is be­ing as­sisted by the Lower Main­land In­te­grated Col­li­sion Anal­y­sis and Re­con­struc­tion Ser­vice (ICARS).

“This is our first ma­jor pedes­trian col­li­sion of 2019. We sin­cerely wish to re­mind ev­ery­one to ex­er­cise spe­cial care whether you are in a ve­hi­cle, on bi­cy­cle, or on foot” says Cor­po­ral Den­nis Hwang. “This was a very trau­matic and un­for­tu­nate or­deal. It was heart­warm­ing to see the com­mu­nity help and pro­vide com­fort to the in­jured” adds Cpl. Hwang.
