Child struck by a car in Abbotsford

A 5 year old girl was transported by air ambulance to hospital after she was struck by a vehicle in Abbotsford just before 6pm.

Constable Ian Mcdonald says it happened in the 31500 block of Blue Ridge Drive.

“Upon arrival, ourselves and other first responders located the five year old girl and recognized she needed immediate medical attention.”

McDonald says the child was airlifted to hospital.

“This area is actually sort of a back alley behind some residential homes. So certainly one of the questions that we will endeavor to answer after putting the priority on the condition of this young child, will be to determine exactly what the vehicle and the young child were doing.”

The 43 year old female driver is co operating with police.
