On Tuesday December 20th, 2016, at approximately 1:00 AM, the Prince George RCMP was called to a report of a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian at the corner of Rainbow Drive and Liard Drive in Prince George.
Police and other emergency services attended the scene and located a 14 year-old female suffering from serious injuries. The driver of the vehicle involved initially stopped, but fled the scene on foot prior to police arrival. The victim was transported to hospital for treatment.
It appears that the small SUV was westbound on Rainbow Drive and struck the northbound pedestrian crossing Rainbow Drive. A North District RCMP Collision Reconstructionist was called in to assist with the investigation. The scene was closed for a number of hours.
