A 40-year-old woman was injured in a hit-and-run in Newton on Sunday night.
Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Tyner Gillies said the pedestrian was crossing in the 7200-block of King George Boulevard, in between intersections, when a silver sedan struck her at about 9 p.m.
He said the vehicle will have “obvious” front-end damage, “likely to the right bumper.” The suspect car – possibly a Honda – was last seen heading south on King George.
Police said the pedestrian’s injuries are not life-threatening.
“The injuries were very minor,” Cpl. Vanessa Munn said Tuesday, though police initially had indicated they were serious. “She actually had walked away from the scene of the collission and was located by members, so no broken bones or anything. The injuries weren’t as severe as initially believed.”
