A 14 year old girl is in the University Hospital of Northern BC with serious injuries after being struck by a small SUV early Tuesday morning. The incident occurred around 1:00am at the corner of Rainbow Drive and Liard Drive. Mounties says the driver initially stopped, but then fled on foot. Investigators later arrested a 31 year old man at a home on Irwin Street. They believe he was the driver of the vehicle and they say he doesn’t have a valid Drivers’s License. The intersection was closed for several hours during the police investigation.
