DELTA — A 77-year-old man was seriously injured this morning in a hit-and-run in North Delta.
The victim, whose name has not been released, was rushed to hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries after a pickup truck struck the pedestrian in a marked crosswalk at Scott Road and 72nd Avenue, at 7 a.m.
Delta Police Acting Sgt. Sarah Swallow said police are looking for a small pickup truck – possibly a Ford Ranger — with no canopy and likely some front-end damage.
“Do the right thing and make contact with police,” is her message to the driver who took off. She said police are also appealing to witnesses, or anyone else with information about this hit-and-run, to contact the Delta Police at 604-946-4411.
