Coquitlam RCMP are seeking the public assistance in identifying two separate suspect drivers involved in a hit and run that has sent one adult female pedestrian to the hospital with serious injuries.

On Saturday, January 27, 2024 at 9:45 p.m., Coquitlam RCMP officers while on patrol, observed a vehicle with its hazards on, stopped at Pinetree Way and Guildford Way in Coquitlam. Responding officers located a lone female pedestrian suffering from serious injuries along with a good Samaritan providing aid to the victim.

The pedestrian was legally walking through the marked crosswalk intersection at Pinetree Way and Guilford Way in Coquitlam. The first suspect vehicle was travelling south-bound on Pinetree Way when it made an east-bound turn onto Guildford Way, striking the pedestrian. Within a short time, a second vehicle, described as a red or burgundy SUV, travelling eastbound struck the victim who was unconscious on the ground. Neither vehicle remained at the scene.

The victim was transported to the hospital with serious injuries. Coquitlam RCMP Victim Services has been engaged.
