A previously unidentified pedestrian who was injured Friday morning has now been identified and is in the company of family, according to police.

North Vancouver RCMP said Saturday (Sept. 24) that police aren't able to provide details about her identity, but confirm that she continues to receive treatment in hospital.

Separately, a woman reached out to North Shore News – who said she was the stepdaughter of the injured pedestrian – saying her stepmother was in intensive care on Saturday and she was "hoping for the very best."

Previously, police asked the public to help identify a woman who was hit while using a crosswalk Friday (Sept. 23) morning on Capilano Road at Garden Avenue.

She was unconscious throughout the day and had no objects on her person to identify her by, police said.

Regarding the initial accident, police said an investigation of the collision is ongoing, but speed and alcohol aren’t believed to be factors. “The driver remained at the scene and is co-operating with police,” North Van RCMP said.
