A little girl is dead, her mother remains in serious condition in hospital.
RCMP in Port Coquitlam say its a tragic situation all around.
A new driver lost control of an SUV, and plowed into four pedestrians at an intersection near a strip mall on Shaughnessy near Lougheed Highway.
Corporal Jamie Chung says the driver involved is a woman in her 40’s.
“There’s a number of conditions that [new drivers] have to follow, one of them being having a qualified supervisor next to you. She was following all of her conditions.”
The driver is cooperating.
Other than the girl’s mother, one other person injured remains in hospital.
One was released with minor injuries.
