Driver arrested for striking pedestrian

Victim flown to Vancouver hospital for treatment

One man is in police custody for striking another man with his vehicle in Thornhill last Thursday night.

The victim was flown to a Vancouver hospital for treatment.

According to an RCMP press release, at approximately 7:35 p.m. on May 31 police received a report of a man shot outside a business on the 2300 block of Thornhill Street.
