A female pedestrian and her child were hit by a pickup truck after it collided with vehicles, barricades and a bus shelter in Maple Ridge on Thursday.

The RCMP received a call at about 3 p.m. regarding a black Dodge pick-up that was “driving recklessly” near a McDonald’s on Dewdney Trunk Road, police said in a news release.

The driver initially left a parking stall and backed into a parked vehicle before he drove forward into a drive-thru and hit barricades before he jumped the curbed laneway and hit the bus shelter.

A woman and her son were injured, with both receiving treatment for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Early reports said the suspect driver was in hospital.

Police arrested a 34-year-old Mission resident amid an investigation for hit and run, impaired driving and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

He was later released on a promise to appear.
