Pedestrian hit in Brookswood

A man was airlifted to hospital after being struck by a vehicle at 4 a.m. on Thursday.

A man was airlifted to hospital after being hit by a car at 40 Avenue and 210 Street early Thursday morning.

Around 4 a.m., the man, whose age isn’t known, was crossing 40 Avenue when he was struck by a westbound vehicle. After hitting the man, the driver turned around and blocked the lane to protect the injured man.

Langley RCMP said the man has several broken bones but his injuries aren’t life threatening.

In April, a 62-year-old Langley man was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after being struck down in a crosswalk at 40 Avenue and 201 Street in the middle of the night. That was a hit and run but police managed to track that driver down a short time later at his home nearby.

He was arrested but charges have not been recommended so far.
