Police say the vehicle was travelling northbound on Scott Road when it struck the woman, who was crossing from the west side to the east side of Scott Road.

Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT), with assistance from the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS), is investigating the crash.
