A 77-year-old North Delta man is in hospital with a broken pelvis and hip after being struck by a truck that then took off.

On Oct. 31 at about 7 a.m.,  Delta Police responded to 72 Avenue and Scott Road for a report of a hit-and-run involving a pedestrian.

The Indo-Canadian man was crossing at a marked crosswalk when he was hit by a white, westbound pick-up truck.

The driver of the pick-up truck continued to drive away down 72 Avenue toward Highway 91.

The pedestrian was taken to hospital with a broken pelvis, fractured hip and dislocated shoulder.

On Thursday, police released an intersection video showing the collision.

It shows what police believe to be a white 1982 to 1992 Chevrolet S10 pick-up truck with aftermarket rims, waiting to turn left to go west on 72 Avenue. As the truck turned, it hit a man in crossing at the light.

Delta Police are appealing to the public to watch the video and to contact them if they have any information about this incident or if they have seen or know the whereabouts of this vehicle.

In an appeal to the driver, Delta Police Acting Sgt. Sarah Swallow issued the following statement:

“We believe that the collision was an accident and not a deliberately malicious act,” Swallow said. “We understand you may be under a great deal of stress and unsure what to do… we urge you to come forward to tell us your side of what happened.”

Any witnesses to the collision, or anyone with any information about this incident, is asked to contact the Delta Police at 604-946-4411.

Police are appealing to the driver of the vehicle to come forward and contact them immediately.
