Investigators examine the scene in Delta where a man was struck by a pickup truck.

Man in serious condition after being hit by truck

Pedestrian was just getting off a bus in North Delta when he was struck by a pick-up truck and thrown back at the bus.



A man is in serious condition after being struck by a pick-up truck in North Delta.

The man was getting off a transit bus at River Road and Centre Street and was crossing River Road when he was struck by the truck

He was thrown into the bus and sustained serious injuries. He was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital.

At the time of this posting, little was known about the man or the extent of his injuries.

The driver of the pick-up truck that hit him remained at scene, as did the bus.

Delta Police Sgt. Sarah Swallow said police believe rain and dark conditions were contributing factors. Drugs, alcohol or distracted driving are not believed to be a cause of the accident.

There is a marked crossing at that site, but it’s unclear as to whether the pedestrian was using it.

The investigation continues.
