The man was struck just after 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, and taken to hospital.

But police haven’t been able to figure out who he is because he wasn’t carrying any identification.

They hope a member of the public can help to discern his identity.

The elderly man was described as an Asian male aged 70 to 80 years old, standing 5’8″ to 5’10” tall and using a black cane.

He wore a grey and blue plaid button-up shirt, along with tan-coloured trousers, brown leather shoes and possibly a black toque, said a Vancouver police news release.
