UPDATED: Witnesses sought in person at Langley collision scene Friday

Police will be out trying to find drivers who witnesses something the day of the impact

Langley Mounties were out in person Friday looking for witnesses to the hit and run that critically injured a 12-year-old Peterson Road Elementary student.

Officers from the Criminal Collision Investigative Team, school liaison officers, general duty, and traffic officers were in the 4900 block of 232nd Street on Oct. 18 hoping to speak to drivers who might have been in the same area the day of the near-fatal collision.

Between 3 p.m. and 3:40 p.m., officers set up a road check and stopped every southbound vehicle on 232nd Street.

They asked drivers whether they saw anything, and were looking for dashcam footage as well.

The timing is based on the time the boy was victim, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Police are trying to find people who were in the area on Friday, Sept. 13, around the time the incident took place.

The boy, Jesse Brown, faces a long and arduous recovery, his family has told the Langley Advance Times. He was unconscious for weeks after the impact.

The vehicle that struck Jesse at 3:20 p.m. while he walked home from school, and which is also believed to be linked to another hit and run that hurt a Langley Secondary student less seriously the same day, is believed to be a blue 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. It was travelling south when Jesse was struck.

A 29-year-old Langley woman was arrested the day of the collision.

Langley RCMP reported the suspect was given a demand for a breath sample by a police officer, and initially refused. She provided samples later in the evening that showed she exceeded the legal blood alcohol limit.

A male passenger in the vehicle was also arrested, for allegedly attempting to hide the car.

Police are looking for as many witnesses as possible and for dashcam footage of the vehicle from that day.

Anyone with information can also call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
