Vancouver hit and run: pregnant woman calls for help

The woman says her car is likely a total loss and that she can’t drive now because of a concussion.

A woman asks the public for help in locating a driver she believes hit her from behind at a traffic light in East Vancouver.

Stephanie Gaultier was driving through town on Saturday (April 30) to visit her parents in Maple Ridge when the incident occurred. At about 11:10 p.m., she was standing at a traffic light on Commercial Drive and East 12th Avenue when her vehicle was hit from behind by a white Toyota Echo.

†[The car] hit me with a speed [that created] screaming for about three seconds before impact and my car screeching in the vehicle in front of me,” she wrote in an email to Vancouver is amazing

The driver was a white woman with long blond hair in her thirties or forties, although Gaultier says she could be in her twenties.

“The radiator is probably very damaged and there must be quite a bit of damage to the front. [There was] liquid on the road from her car,” she notes.

Although she could see some of the damage to the vehicle, Gaultier, who is six months pregnant, was unable to see the license plate after hitting her head hard during the crash; her ‘vision was too blurry’ and she felt ‘dazzled’.

Someone on social media said they saw the car whimsically zooming in on Woodland Drive after the incident and crossing a “no trespassing” barricade. “That has also been reported to the police,” notes Gaultier.

As for her own vehicle, the local woman described her car as “squatted”. and assumes it is added up. In addition, she is currently not allowed to drive.

Gaultier filed a report with the Vancouver Police Department and shared a video of the white car driving away on social media in an attempt to locate the driver.
