A Chilliwack teen was taken to hospital with serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle Saturday evening.
Mounties say the woman was crossing the street when she was hit near the intersection of First Avenue and Charles Street.
The driver of the vehicle, a 71-year-old woman from Chilliwack, stopped and remained at the scene until police arrived. The victim sustained "numerous injuries" and was airlifted to hospital, where she is listed in stable but critical condition.
Police are reminding the public to be aware of their surroundings, use the sidewalk if one is available, always look both ways before crossing the street, and wear highly visible or light clothing when walking at night.
