Another pedestrian struck and injured at Surrey bus stop

Corvette slams into bus shelter on King George Boulevard and 96 Avenue.

There was another crash at a bus stop in Surrey Thursday night, which seriously injured a man.

At just after 6 p.m. Oct. 8, a white Corvette was travelling north on King George Boulevard near 96 Avenue when it lost control, struck a fire hydrant and crashed into a bus shelter, hitting a pedestrian.

The driver fled on foot and jumped into a cab.

A witness at the scene saw the driver flee and followed him a short distance, where the driver was seen getting into a taxi. The witness relayed the information to the police who were able to locate and stop the taxi at 88 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

A man who was believed to be the driver of the Corvette was later taken into custody by police.

The passenger in the car and the pedestrian were taken to hospital in serious condition.

As of Friday morning, the pedestrian was in surgery and suffered extensive injuries to his legs.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation. Alcohol is believed to be a factor.

The bus stop crash is the second in Surrey in as many days. On Wednesday, 22-year-old Evan Archibald was killed when a Jeep driven by a 17-year-old girl struck him while he waited at a bus shelter  on Fraser Highway near 156 Street.

Archibald was taken to hospital in critical condition, but succumbed to his injuries.

The girl who was driving remained at the scene and is cooperating with police with information about the crash.

Anyone who witnessed these incidents or has further information is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca
