SURREY — A memorial run in Burnaby this weekend will mark the third anniversary of Const. Adrian Oliver’s death.

The Surrey RCMP officer was killed on Nov. 13, 2012, when his patrol car collided with a semi-trailer truck at the intersection of 64th Avenue and 148th Street in Surrey. He was 28.

The 2015 Adrian Oliver Memorial Run will take place Saturday (Nov. 14) at Deer Lake Park, with a barbecue lunch to follow. Event proceeds will be donated to Honour House Society.

“Adrian was a very well regarded and respected police officer with a loving and charismatic personality,” reads a post on the society’s website.

Oliver was the fifth Surrey Mountie to be killed while on duty since the force began policing this city in 1951. He was heading back to the detachment headquarters near the end of his shift, just before 5 a.m. The unmarked police car he was driving, a 2010 Crown Victoria Interceptor, crashed with the semi-truck as the driver of the truck was arriving home from Calgary.
