Vancouver Police are investigating an overnight collision that has sent a woman to hospital with serious injuries.

Shortly before 5:00 p.m. on December 16th, a 27 year old Vancouver woman was getting out her parked car on Nanaimo Street and 29th Avenue when she was sideswiped by a passing truck.  The woman’s husband and young child, who were inside the car at the time of the crash, were not injured in the collision.

The driver of the truck, who left the scene without providing help to the woman, was later tracked down by police. The 46 year old Vancouver man is being investigated for failing to remain at the scene of an accident and impaired driving. 

The woman was transported to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone who witnessed or has information about the collision and has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact the VPD Collision Investigation Unit at (604) 717-3012.
