Police seek more information after car hits Grandmother and her grandchildren


The Abbotsford Police investigators say they’re continuing to speaking to witnesses
and collecting CCTV to determine the causes for an incident that sent a grandmother and her two grandchildren to hospital.

On Monday at 8:17 am, Abbotsford Emergency Services responded to the report of
pedestrians hit by a Toyota Yaris on Ridgeview Drive, east of the intersection with
Townline Road.

The woman, in her mid 60’s and her 5-year-old grandson were both airlifted to hospital with serious injuries, while her other 2-year-old grandson was taken with less serious injuries by ambulance.

The 2-year-old has since been released, while the 5-year-old remains in hospital with a broken femur and under observation. The grandmother remains in hospital in stable but serious condition.

“We do provide victim services to all parties that maybe witnessed or were involved with this incident and in addition to that, we will provide any sort of support that we can for the family throughout this time,” says Sgt. Judy Bird of Abbotsford Police.

Abbotsford Police are continuing to seek anyone that may have been in the area and have dashcam footage.

The driver remained at the scene and has been cooperating with investigators.
