Pregnant woman loses unborn child in hit-and-run

A pregnant woman lost her unborn child as a result of a hit and run Friday.

Police say they were called out Highway 97 North and Noranda Road shortly before 7:00 p.m. for a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. Police located a woman being provided first aid by passing motorists. Emergency Health Services transported the 37-year-old woman to the hospital in serious condition.

“It is with sadness we report the woman’s unborn child did not survive the incident; the mother is currently in stable condition,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP. “Evidence at the site of the incident indicates that a 2014-2017 Ford F350 may have been involved in the collision. The vehicle will have damage to the front passenger side. Police are looking for any witnesses to the collision or anyone that was driving in that area between 6:30 and 6:50 p.m. with a dash cam to call the non-emergency line at 250-561-3300 to speak with an investigator.”

This file remains under investigation.
