Pedestrian hit by vehicle in Surrey, driver arrested: RCMP
A person was arrested in Surrey on Monday after police said the speeding driver struck a pedestrian walking on the sidewalk, sending the victim to hospital.
Surrey RCMP arrived at the scene of the collision on 88th Avenue near 140th Street around 6:14 p.m. and administered first aid to the pedestrian, according to a statement released later that evening.
The victim was sent to the hospital with minor injuries and yellow police tape was placed around the 14000 block of 88th Avenue, as well as the offending silver Hyundai.
“At this time of the investigation, it appears that speeding played a role in this incident and the driver has been taken into custody, pending investigation,” Monday’s release reads.
Mounties say the vehicle involved had to be towed from the crime scene and 88th Ave. was closed for hours for research purposes.
“Roads reopened to all traffic at approximately 9:35 p.m. yesterday,” Corp. Vanessa Munn in an email to CTV News Tuesday morning.
As the case is still under investigation, Munn said she could not provide further details about the driver or victim.
Surrey RCMP is asking anyone with more information, including dash cam video from the area at the time, to contact Mounties at 604-599-0502.
