More than a week after a tragic hit-and-run in Port Coquitlam that killed a teen, police are still looking for the driver.
On Monday, RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said there was no significant development in the case over the weekend.
However, investigators continue to follow up on tips received after the release of a surveillance video Friday near the scene of the incident.
The video, taken from a nearby home on Mary Hill Road, shows a possible suspect in a black truck driving away near the scene of the crash.
"We're trying to go through and follow up on tips as thoroughly and quickly as possible," Chung said.
Despite rumours that were flying around on Friday, he noted police have not identified a suspect or a person of interest yet, adding it's not uncommon for investigators to interview a number of people in a case.
Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Pitt River Road and Mary Hill Road at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 10 to a report of a pedestrian being struck.
Investigators said the teen was crossing Mary Hill with a friend when a dark-coloured truck hit the girl while she was in the crosswalk.
The driver allegedly stopped for a moment, looked back, then took off.
The girl's name was not released, however, she has been identified as Annie Leung, a Riverside Secondary student.
In a press release Friday, Mounties said they have not spoken to the man seen in the video, but believe he could have important information about the critical moments immediately before and after the collision.
"We have received a lot of information from the public," said Insp. Paulette Freill in a statement. "We are grateful for that support and we are following up on every bit of information that comes in. Today we are asking for the public's help identifying the man in this video and two other people who were at the scene so our team can speak to them about what they saw."
RCMP said investigators are also hoping to identify and speak to the driver of a silver truck that witnesses report was in the immediate vicinity of the collision.
Police note the truck is not a suspect vehicle and they do not have a physical description of the driver.
RCMP also want to speak to the man who administered first aid to the victim immediately after the collision.
"On behalf of the victim, her family and friends and everyone who has been touched by this tragedy, I am asking these three individuals, as well as anyone else with information
about the collision, to contact us immediately," Freill said.
"And I have a message for the driver who left the scene: We need to speak to you and it is not too late to do the right thing."
RCMP are asking anyone with information related to the collision or the identity of the driver to contact Coquitlam RCMP traffic services at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2013-27102.
