Vancouver Police yesterday asked for the public’s help finding the driver of a vehicle that hit a woman in the Downtown Eastside, leaving her in critical condition in hospital.

The victim was crossing the intersection at Powell Street and Jackson Avenue just before 1:30 a.m. on Saturday when she was hit and knocked several metres down the road.

“Based on pieces of the vehicle left at the scene, the suspect vehicle is believed to be either a light-coloured Toyota Landcruiser between the years of 1991 and 1997 or a light-coloured Lexus LX450 between the years of 1996 and 1997,” said Const. Lindsey Houghton.

He added the car will have “significant fresh damage” to the front right headlight area.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-717-3012 or Crime Stoppers.
