Young boy victim of hit-and-run in Langford

An 11-year-old boy was the victim of a hit-and-run as he crossed Jacklin Road at Station Avenue on Friday afternoon.

An 11-year-old boy was the victim of a hit-and-run as he crossed Jacklin Road at Station Avenue last Friday afternoon.

According to a police report, the tween was in the south marked crosswalk, with the walk indicator illuminated, heading towards Dunford Ave. at about 2:30 p.m. Dec. 30. He had just stepped off the sidewalk when he was struck by a woman driving a gray, newer-model Volvo station wagon.

The boy’s parents and a younger sibling had been walking with him, and were crossing the street through the north crosswalk at the time.

They reported to police that the Volvo was travelling north, about to make a right-turn onto Station Avenue through the red light, and braked too late to stop at the crosswalk. The vehicle skidded into their child, then drove away.

The boy was relatively unharmed and able to walk away from in incident. He suffered only some sore muscles that were treated by his family doctor.

West Shore RCMP hope the driver will come forward, and they’re also asking to speak to witnesses or people who may be able to identify the driver. Anyone with information should contact the West Shore RCMP Detachment at 250-474-2264.
