UPDATE: Elderly woman in serious condition after being hit by bus in Surrey

The pedestrian crash happened shortly after 1 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon near Surrey Central SkyTrain

SURREY — Police say a 73-year-old woman remains in hospital in serious condition Thursday after being hit by a bus in Surrey.

Surrey RCMP say the woman, a pedestrian, was struck by a BC Transit bus around 1:20 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6.

“Right now, we’re going to be considering if sunlight affected visibility,” said Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann. “There were patches of fog, certainly that can make the sun more intense, but that’s just one of the possible factors.”

The incident blocked off 102nd Avenue eastbound from City Parkway for more than an hour Wednesday afternoon.


This isn’t the first serious pedestrian accident in Surrey this year, or even during the last couple of weeks.

On Nov. 25, a 73-year-old woman was killed after being struck outside of Fire Hall 4 at 146th Street and 108 Avenue. The accident occurred just after sundown near a signalized pedestrian crosswalk. Surrey RCMP confirmed that the woman was jaywalking east of the crosswalk at 146th Street and 108 Avenue.

Surrey RCMP say to the end of October, there were 113 pedestrian-related crashes, with five fatalities and eight involving serious injuries.

OUR VIEW: Simple changes can curtail pedestrian crashes in Surrey

“Shorter days and poor weather is a factor that leads to 43 per cent of all crashes with pedestrians occurring between October and January,” Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann told the Now-Leader in November.

“With this in mind pedestrians need to use extra caution when crossing the road and make eye contact with drivers to ensure they see you. Drivers need to pay attention to the road and pedestrians, reduce distractions while driving and slow down.

“Together everyone plays a role in reducing the likelihood of a crash.”

More to come.
