Vancouver Police search for hit-and-run driver

Vancouver Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the driver of a hit-and-run vehicle involved in a collision at the end of last summer in East Vancouver.

Just before 8:30 p.m. on September 8, 2018, a ride-share EVO car collided with a grey Nissan SUV in the intersection of Skeena and East Georgia streets. The driver of the EVO briefly got out and checked on the injured driver of the SUV before driving out of the area. The 52-year-old man driving the Nissan was treated at hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

“Regardless of who’s at fault in a collision, drivers are required by law to exchange information. Not only did that not happen here, but the driver of the EVO got back into his car and simply left,” says Constable Jason Doucette, VPD. “We have recovered video that shows the driver of the EVO and have confirmed it was not the registered EVO client. We are asking the public to call us if they recognize the young man in the photo.”

Anyone with information about the person in the photo is asked to call the VPD’s Hit and Run Unit at 604-717-9360 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
