Hit-and-run hurts young cyclist

Richmond RCMP are hoping to talk to the Asian driver of a silver or gold minivan who was involved in a crash with a young cyclist at the Broadmoor Shopping Centre on Tuesday morning.

RCMP Cpl. Annie Linteau said Mounties were contacted about the accident around 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2.

The 11-year-old victim sustained superficial cuts to both of his legs.

The driver of the minivan stopped and asked if the young boy was alright, but left the area without contacting the police or leaving her contact information.

The driver is described as an Asian woman, about 40 years old, was wearing a black jacket and spoke perfect English.

She was driving a gold or silver coloured minivan.

Police are asking the driver to come forward.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Richmond RCMP Const. Ng at 604-278-1212.
