29-year-old male pedestrian killed in Surrey

Man hit while jaywalking across King George Boulevard near 107 Avenue, police say.



A 29-year old male pedestrian was fatally struck by a car Tuesday night in the area of 107 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., a 1990 Honda Accord was driving northbound in the 10700 block of King George Boulevard when it hit one of two pedestrians that were jaywalking across the road going west to east.

The pedestrian from Surrey was pronounced dead at the scene. The other pedestrian was uninjured.

At this time, police say there is no evidence to suggest speed or alcohol use on the part of the driver, although it is believed that both pedestrians had been consuming alcohol prior to the collision.

The northbound lanes of King George Boulevard between 105 and 108 Avenues were closed for several hours Tuesday night. Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team is currently investigating. Anyone with additional information is asked contact them at 604-599-0502 or surrey_ccit@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.

“This area of the city has seen its share of pedestrian-involved motor vehicle collisions, despite ongoing efforts to educate and enforce traffic safety in this area,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger. “We have seen four pedestrian fatalities occur in this northern stretch of King George Boulevard in just the past three years.”

Pedestrians are reminded to only cross the street at controlled intersections or marked crosswalks and always stop to see if vehicles are stopping before they cross. Drivers are reminded to slow down, pay attention to their surroundings, and refrain from using hand-held devices.

Surrey RCMP’s Traffic Section continues to enforce issue tickets for such infractions as pedestrian jaywalking, crossing against lights or walks signals, and drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians. The fines for these types of infractions range in upwards of $109.
