Boy, 12, in critical condition after B.C. hit-and-run

One of two Friday hit-and-runs the driver is believed to be part of, Langley police say

A 12-year-old boy is clinging to life after he was hit by a suspected drunk driver in Langley, police say.

The child was struck by a dark blue Nissan Rogue on 232 Street, just north of Fraser Highway, at around 3:30 p.m. on Friday, according to Cpl. Holly Largy.

He was in critical condition with life-threatening injuries after being airlifted to hospital.

The 29-year-old female driver drove off, but was later found and arrested. A male passenger was also arrested after he allegedly tried to hide the SUV, Largy said.

Investigators believe the driver also hit an 18-year-old earlier that afternoon, near Langley Senior Secondary, just a short distance away. The teen needed medical attention, but injuries were not life-threatening.
