Brookside hit-and-run driver still at large
Street has issues, says neighbour
One neighbor is calling a recent hit-and-run incident that mowed down an elderly couple near Brookside "inevitable."
Don Edwards said he's alerted the police in the past about cars speeding in his Brookside neighbourhood.
"There's no sidewalks, as you can see, on either side of the street so you have to walk on the side of the road. It's a curvy road and a lot of the people who drive here for some reason find it necessary to drive very fast. I've almost got hit a few times myself walking the dog," he said.
Police are still looking for the driver of a hit-and-run vehicle who hit Gerald and Joan Pippy of Bayside. Gerald Pippy, 71, was seriously injured and remains in fair condition in hospital.
Maranda Mellish was one of the first people to find the Pippys after the accident.
"He was very frazzled at first. He was just coming to but as he came to slowly he was convinced that he wasn't hit by a car," she said.
"As we slowly got him up a little bit, we noticed he was bleeding from the head a little bit so we thought we'd keep him down until we could get the ambulance to come."
While it was dark when the accident happened, RCMP said the Pippys were wearing reflective vests so they should have been easy to see.
The driver could be charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
