      Langley RCMP are continuing to search for witnesses of a hit-and-run that left a 12-year-old boy with life-altering injuries.

      Around 3:20 p.m. on September 13, a 12-year-old boy was walking in the 4900 block of 232nd Street in Langley when he was hit by a blue 2017 Nissan Pathfinder that was heading southbound.

      The driver did not stop after the collision.

      The boy, who was hospitalized, suffered critical injuries that included bone fractures, vision loss, and paralysis.

      Officers were in the area of the collision on October 18 in search of more witnesses.

      Anyone who saw this vehicle between 3 and 3:40 p.m. on September 13 or who has information about this collision is asked to contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

      According to previous Langley RCMP news releases, the vehicle was involved in another hit-and-run before this incident.

      Prior to the collision involving the 12-year-old boy, the Nissan Pathfinder struck an 18-year-old male leaving Langley Senior Secondary School around 3:10 p.m. before fleeing west on 56th Avenue.

      Shortly after the second hit-and-run, police found the vehicle in the 3300 block of 232nd Street. A 29-year-old female driver from Langley tested positive for alcohol impairment and was released from custody with a driving prohibition.

      A 19-year-old male passenger, who was attempting to hide the vehicle which had sustained front-end damage, was also arrested.

      Investigators believe speed to be a contributing factor in the collisions.
