Man dead after Jeep hits bus stop in Surrey

Police say a 17-year-old Surrey girl was driving the Jeep that crashed into a bus stop

FLEETWOOD — A 22-year-old man is dead after a crash in Fleetwood Wednesday morning.

The victim has been identified as Evan Archibald, of Surrey.

At about 9:30 a.m. a black Jeep making a left turn onto Fraser Highway near 156th Street mounted the curb and hit the man, who was sitting on a bench at a bus shelter.

The driver, a 17-year-old Surrey girl, suffered minor injuries and is co-operating with police.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, but police say weather may have been a factor.

The Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT) and the Integrated Collision and Reconstructionist Service (ICARS) analyzed the scene.

Surrey Mounties are also looking for witnesses to a fatal traffic crash in Newton early Sunday morning.

A young man died after the black Saturn he was driving smashed into a utility pole in the 7200-block of King George Boulevard, at about 5:19 a.m. His name was not released. No one else was in the car.

Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
