Driver runs over girl's foot

POLICE are asking for the public’s assistance in looking for a driver that ran over the foot of a 10 yr old girl then fled the scene.

At approximately 6 PM Jan. 22  a woman and her daughter were crossing Kenney St when a truck drove into their path. The mother screamed at her daughter to look out but the truck drove over the foot of the girl. The truck then served, drove up onto the sidewalk, and sped away not stopping. BC Ambulance transported the girl to Mill Memorial Hospital for assessment.

The girl’s injuries were fortunately minor in nature. Pedestrians and drivers can take steps to increase public safety. Drivers need to slow down and pay attention at all times, especially when approaching pedestrian crossings and at night. Pedestrians need to be aware of approaching traffic and assume that they have not been seen. Choice of clothing is also very important at night. Wear at a minimum bright colors, and ideally reflective material. Even a small amount of reflection on jackets or shoes can really light up at night and make a person visible, says Cst Angela Rabut, media relations/community policing officer at Terrace Detachment.

The driver is described as wearing a dark navy blue light jacket, Caucasian, 30s, light coloured hair with a small ponytail, squinty eyes, and distinctive hands. The vehicle was a small red compact pickup truck, possibly a Nissan.
