SURREY (NEWS 1130) – A man has serious injuries after being hit by a car at King George and 80th at about 1:30 Saturday┬ámorning.

The driver has been detained and is now being investigated for impaired driving.

Surrey RCMP Staff Sergeant Blair McColl says the driver initially took off but was caught a short distance away.

“Parked the vehicle in the corner of a parking lot and got out, if I describe it, I guess maybe to distance himself a little bit form the vehicle, but we were there fairly quickly and there was an eye-witness who saw where he went.”

Charges are pending.

The pedestrian was in the crosswalk at the time of the crash.
