Condolences are pouring in online for a 26 year old woman who was struck and severely injured in a downtown Vancouver hit and run early Monday morning.
Friends and family on social media are identifying the victim as business consultant Ovey Yeung.
Notes left on her facebook page read “get well soon and have a speedy recovery,” ” hang in there” and “stay strong, we don’t want to lose you.”
Ovey Yeung’s sister Clara has posted to her facebook page a quick note thanking everyone for their support, messages and prayers but are asking people to hold off visiting until her condition stabilizes.
The woman was mowed down by an eastbound vehicle on Pacific Boulevard near Abbott Street around 4am.
The suspect vehicle is a new model black Honda civic with extensive front end damage as a result of the collision.
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
