Grant on Global News: Video captures hit-and-run driver slam head-on into parked car in Burnaby

A Burnaby woman is venting her frustration after a hit-and-run driver smashed head-on into her parked car, in an incident captured on security video.

Jamie, who did not provide her last name out of safety concerns, said it happened Monday around 11:20 a.m. near Duthie Avenue and Curtis Street.

Grant Gottgetreu, a forensic consultant and retired West Vancouver police officer, said he had the same suspicions about the driver of the offending vehicle.

But he said it would be unlikely that the driver would face serious consequences.

That’s because unless police can prove who was behind the wheel, the most serious penalty would be a ticket under the Motor Vehicle Act.

He said if officers could prove who was driving, there would be grounds for a Criminal Code charge.
