After a woman was hit by a Cadillac last month police are looking for any witnesses.

The "life-altering" accident happened Tuesday, Dec. 22 near the intersection of Rupert Street and East 14th Avenue. Around 2 p.m. the 63-year-old woman was walking when she was hit by a white Cadillac, according to a Vancouver Police Department (VPD) press release, causing her to hit her head.

She's still in a hospital now, more than three weeks later.

“This collision probably didn’t look very serious when it happened, so we believe there are witnesses who didn’t stick around to talk to police,” says Sgt. Steve Addison in the release. “Sadly, the incident has had tragic and life-altering consequences.”

The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and spoke with police. Speed and alcohol are not contributing factors, according to the police; the afternoon sun may have been, though.

The VPD are looking for any witnesses, or anyone with footage from a dashcam, to speak with them. Anyone looking to reach out can call 604-717-3012.
