There will be one less setting at the Christmas table for the Nilssen family this year, after Janet Nilssen’s brother was killed in a hit and run collision in Langley early Sunday morning.
Nilssen describes her brother, Dan McAuley as warm and loving, a man who was looked up to by his nephew Matthew.
“One year just for an example, he had bought him, he’d warn a jersey and he pretended he had thrown his jersey in the dryer, and came out with a Mini Me jersey that was the same.”
Nilssen is calling on the person responsible for this tragedy to do the right thing.
“I would just hope they would have a conscience and come forward.”
She questions why the driver of the vehicle that hit McAuley would leave the scene.
Langley RCMP are asking the public to come forward with any information about the incident.
