On March 8, 2024, at approximately 6:45 p.m., the victim was crossing Marine Drive in the 5400-block (by the Hindu Temple), when she was struck by a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle reportedly stopped and initially assisted the victim, but then left the scene without exchanging information.

Investigators have learned there were several people in the area that witnessed the incident and some even took photos and video, however, no one has come forward.

If you have photos or video of the incident or the aftermath of the incident, we would really like to hear from you, said Cpl Mike Kalanj with Burnaby RCMP. You might have captured the SUV on video or in a photo before or after the incident and not even know it.
