The crash happened around 3:30 p.m. in the 4900-block of 232nd Street. Langley RCMP say the 29-year-old driver fled the scene and was arrested minutes later.
Her passenger was also arrested after allegedly attempting to hide the dark blue Nissan Rogue involved in the incident.
“She has refused to provide samples of her breath, so information will be provided to the Crown prosecutor and they’ll make a determination as to which charges will be laid,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy.
Speaking to Global News Friday night, she said she hadn’t received recent updates on the boy’s condition — but that it was very serious.
The 12-year-old boy is now in hospital. Earlier in the same day, an 18-year-old was leaving Langley Senior Secondary School and was struck by a car, which police believe was the same one.

Anyone who witnessed either collision or may have information about the driving pattern of the Rogue prior to the collision is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
