Saw this being shared by many friends on facebook who knew the girl that was hit, seen her around on campus at SFU, her wall was literally flooded with best wishes comments. Really hope she pulls through.

Be on the look out for a black Civic with frontal damage.

The least you could do is stay after you hit someone. Beside is Vancouver even if you hit someone most likely not much will happen to you.

People these days~~ too afraid to face consequence. Do the crime face the time.

As someone currently dealing with ICBC for an accident where I was not at fault (got rear ended), it's a pain in the ass and they don't pay for it all up front. My physiotherapy costs are covered 50% now and 50% later, apparently. ICBC takes a long time to get you a cheque.

Also, prescription drugs aren't cheap and even if you're covered, you aren't covered 100% most of the time. I have family members paying $800 a month for prescription drugs despite having MSP coverage.

No one is going to go bankrupt on medical bills like they do in the US. If this was the US, $10k wouldn't even be a drop in the bucket. She'll be taken care of but there is still a financial burden on the her and her family that they shouldn't have to deal with because some douche ran into her.

Thanks, I was wondering about the MSP/ICBC as well.

As for Ovey, I am acquainted with her and have many mutual friends though not very close. She has always been super outgoing and friendly; definitely well liked and has a bright career future ahead of her.

She had liked a few of my pics I had posted on FB the afternoon prior to the accident, it's kind of unnerving to see it now realizing what tragedy she would encounter mere hours later.

Actually they do pay 100% of everything on an ongoing basis. I was also injured from a rear end collision and not out of pocket for anything.

Ovey is a friend of mine and I ask everyone to keep your eye out for the black civic and pray for her full recovery.

I want to see a bounty on the civic.
Similar to Cops.

Information leading to the arrest and conviction.
A cunt who will run away from this probably has cunt friends as well.
We just need to entice one of them to sell-out his cowardly buddy.

I'm currently paying 50% of my physio costs, which they will reimburse me for later.

That's too bad. They reimburse me 100% for physio, chiro, massage, prescriptions, Tylenol, you name it. Yes you'll be reimbursed eventually for the difference but I rather not deal with that if I don't have to.

i wonder what she was doing at 4am to be involved in the accident (what i mean is, was she crossing at an intersection, or jay walking, etc. - i'm not attesting blame, just interested in the circumstances) - regardless, the driver of the civic is guilty of something as he left the scene. accidents do, sadly, happen, but to leave, that either says you were doing something wrong or you're an idiot.

i'm a little confused as to why there is a need for raising funds. I thought Canada had free healthcare. The victim in question worked, correct? so wouldn't she have extended healthcare through that, above and beyond MSP, ICBC... i think that raised money shouldn't be needed from the perspective of this free healthcare system and her insurance should be sufficient... i guess the truth comes out when something serious happens, as has been supported by Ronin's case and others.

i do wish her well, as one human to another (don't know her personally) - no one deserves this.

edit: i hope they find the civic driver quickly and throw the fucking book at him/her. unfortunately one cannot prove if they were drunk or high subsequently, but i want all the powers available to throw at this person. they've had enough time to come forward now and say it was a terrible knee jerk reaction to leave, and show remorse - clearly this isn't happening.

sadly, they'll get a suspended sentence and license taken away for 12 months, or less, just like the drunk driver that killed my friend's family...

MSP doesn't cover prescription drugs, it only covers your care with doctors and hospitals. Extend health insurance through work or out of pocket covers prescription drugs.

hope the best for her.

but i just need to know...why does everyone care so damn much about this? this happens all the time and nobody else sets up a donation for medical bills for that person. ive actually never even heard of this girl before so really ive no emotional attachment to her/this scenario. i see person after person on my facebook feed posting this saying "lets help her" or "shes the best" etc etc, yet not a single one of them are friends with her (or so their friends list says).

because some people are valued higher than others in society because they are popular, with the in crowd, etc.

i agree with your sentiment exactly, nothing against this girl, but just that all life is equal.

that's not to say i don't wish her well, i wish her well as much as anyone else unfairly hurt or injured.

I hope the indegogo campaign actually only uses what is necessary to help her. If there is any leftover, donate it to charity or something. This can easily become a Filipino Charity Scam. That being said, I don't know the severity of her situation and don't know if the money raised will be enough either. Just expressing my concerns on donating to people I don't know on the internetz.

shits messed up.


i noticed there's been a lot more stories of hit and runs in the news this year.
it's a pretty disturbing trend that it seems like more and more people are choosing the coward's way after causing accidents.
kinda makes me wonder if we need to revisit and maybe put more effort into how we deal with hit and runs

i absolutely hate these type of people, sure you have options, sure you may have been scared but fuck you for running...you have it easy, just think of the person you left injured/dying. I hope your family member/loved one suffers the exact same fate.

god forbid if this ever happened to a loved one, they better pray the authorities find them first if they decide to run away, cus i will spend my every waking moment and I will run myself to dust looking for this fucker and when I find them, they'll wish for the rest of their short lives that they'd stayed.

This definitely won't be a filipino charity scam.

Last I heard, she was in an induced coma, so the situation is pretty severe.

because she's Asian, goes to SFU, and this is revscene.

seems like the typical equation.

Fuck off with trying to bring race into this.

It's about someone getting run over to the point where she's in a medically induced coma. Doesn't matter if she's asian, white, black, brown, ubc, sfu, langara, kwantlen.
