5 year old boy victim of hit and run


Recommended Posts


A five-year-old is suffering serious head injuries and has been airlifted to hospital after being struck by a car which then fled the scene.

On Friday at about 2:55 p.m., the child was crossing the street at 161 Street and 92 Avenue when struck by a car.

The vehicle then fled, leaving the child unconscious by the side of the road.

Police are looking for a newer model silver Mercedes, four door, with tinted windows and large stock rims.

It was last seen speeding eastbound on 92 Avenue.

"Right now, this is the only vehicle our entire police force is looking for," said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet.

"We do know it is a hit and run, anyone with any information, call the non emergency number," Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said. "Or if you're the driver involved, do the right thing."

Surrey RCMP are asking anyone with information about the tragic accident to call 604-599-0502 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Paquet urges drivers to slow down and watch their driving, particularly around school hours.

"There's kids everywhere, especially three to five o'clock," Paquet said. "Lots of traffic, everyone is in a hurry, take your time, look everywhere, and just slow down and be aware."

Police are baffled as to why someone would leave someone, especially a young child, unconscious by the side of the road

"We see people make wrong decisions every day," Paquet said. "But this crosses the line. How do you not stop and do the right thing."

That's disgusting. Some really messed up people out there. To leave an adult is bad enough, but a child? Come on

Who just lets there 5 year old wander across streets alone?

Hopefully he manages to recover. Though I also hate it when people say it baffles them that the suspect fled the scene.

CBC says it was a woman.

A woman in her 20s has been arrested in connection with a hit and run that left a five-year-old, Surrey, B.C. boy in hospital, Surrey RCMP say.

"The driver of the vehicle involved in this tragic incident turned themselves in," Insp. Bruce Stuart said in a statement on Saturday evening. Police are not releasing the woman's name pending charges.

Arshdeep Singh Sidhu remains unconscious at B.C. Children's Hospital, after suffering serious head injuries when he was struck by a silver-coloured Mercedes in the Surrey neighbourhood of Fleetwood on Friday afternoon.

Police had found the car at a nearby home on Friday night, just a few blocks from the site of the accident, and spent much of Saturday visiting several residences to try and make an arrest.

The vehicle is described as a 2005 four-door Mercedes with tinted windows and large stock rims. It was towed from the home's driveway on Friday and will undergo extensive mechanical and forensic inspection, said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet in a statement.

The people living in the rental home are well known to them, Paquet said.

The hit and run happened in the 16,100-block of 92nd Avenue at around 3 p.m. PT on Friday when Arshdeep was walking home from kindergarten with his cousin, Pavel Sidhu.

"When he crashed it was like no, no, no, then the car crashed into him… the woman who was driving did not care, she just kept driving," said the fourth-grade student.

16100 block 92nd Ave.

"I'm calling, 'Arsh wake up, Arsh wake up.' No response," said his uncle Paul Sidhu, who has been by his side since the kindergarten student was struck in front of his house.

The family had planned to spend the day at Vancouver's Playland amusement park, the uncle said, adding that they still hope to go when the boy recovers.

Leaving the scene of an accident is a Criminal Code offence.

The posted speed limit in the school zone where he was hit is 30 km/h, but witnesses say the driver was going as fast as 70 km/h.

So you're good with that? I can't think of a lower form of cowardice. The truly sad part is this type of behaviour is rampant. And you're endorsing it? Explain your logic, please.
