Emergency crews tend to the wounded after a motorcycle accident that took the life of Amarpeet Sivia last month.

Final Surrey crash victim released from hospital

16-year-old died in motorcycle collision near Princess Margaret Secondary.

A girl who was hit by a motorcycle a few weeks ago near Princess Margaret Secondary is now out of the hospital and nursing head and pelvis injuries.

Three teens were crossing 128 Street near 69 Avenue in September when they were struck by a motorcycle.

Amarpeet Sivia, 16, was killed in the accident, while a two friends were taken to hospital. One was released right away, while another stayed until last week, when she was released.

The motorcyclist received relatively minor injuries, was treated and released immediately.

Police said this week it is still too early in the investigation to say whether speed was a factor in the accident.

In wake of the accident, there was a new call for a crosswalk at that location and Surrey is now examining such plans.

In July 2011, the City of Surrey embarked on a study of the engineering requirements of all school areas within the city.

That included the strip along 128 Street that serves Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Princess Margaret Secondary where the collision occurred.

The study concluded that a crosswalk would be needed just south of 72 Avenue on 128 Street, according to Surrey’s General Manager of Engineering Vincent LaLonde.

The study found there was a high amount of pedestrian traffic at 72 Avenue (where there’s a lighted crossing) and also at 70 Avenue, which both have commercial areas that attract students.

The determination was to build a crosswalk 150 meters south of 72 Avenue in 2014.

Anyone who witnessed the incident who has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team at 604-599-0502.
