An elderly lady in hospital after being struck and running during the day in South Vancouver t

The police are investigating after we hit and run during the day held in South Vancouver.

Just before 1 pm on Sunday, a 71 year old woman crossed Southeast Marine Drive in Victoria Drive through a crossroads.

Partly through, she was hit by a silver mini van moving towards the west.

Witnesses immediately came to help the victim and he was rushed to hospital with serious injuries.

However, the driver failed to stop and leave the area immediately.

Based on information shared by witnesses, police officers found what is believed to be the suspected vehicle. He was parked and left empty at New Westminster.

Detectives from the VPD Collision Investigation Unit ask any witnesses, or anyone driving in the area with step-cam material, to call 604-717-3012.

Meanwhile, Victoria Drive is closed to both directions, as well as two three-lane lanes moving west on Southeast Marine Drive.

Roads are expected to be cleared later this evening.
