Richmond RCMP seeking help in locating suspect in hit & run of an 11-year old child

Shortly before 9 a.m. on Wednesday frontline Richmond RCMP officers responded to the area of No. 1 Road and Tucker Avenue after reports of an 11-year old boy being struck.

The boy was pushing his bicycle in a marked pedestrian crosswalk and struck by a gray minivan. This minivan then proceeded to sideswipe another vehicle before fleeing the scene.

The child received non-life threatening injuries but was transported to hospital. He has since been released. No other parties were reportedly injured.

The suspect allegedly driving the gray minivan was described as an Asian woman, possibly in her 50’s, with a bob-style haircut. The gray minivan may have light damage present.

Richmond RCMP is actively investigating this disturbing collision and is very interested in locating the driver of this vehicle. We would greatly appreciate the public’s assistance in this matter.
