A woman is in hospital fighting for her life after she was hit by a car while trying to cross Highway 1 in Coquitlam.
“This lady was trying to run away from one of the Superstore. Allegations that she had just shoplifted and she ran in to traffic and was hit dead on by another vehicle. Like a vehicle is travelling at 100, 110.”
Sgt. Tony Farahbakhchian says a second woman managed to make it across between Schoolhouse and King Edward, but she disappeared.
The driver remained at the scene.
Police are asking the second woman to come forward because they’re so unable to identify the woman who was hit.
