Pedestrian hit in Delta, police seek witnesses

A 23-year-old left with head injuries after being struck last Thursday on Highway 91 onramp.

Last Thursday (Nov. 12) at about 6 p.m., the RCMP’s Deas Island Traffic Services was called to the scene of a pedestrian struck on the on-ramp to Highway 91 northbound at Cliveden Avenue in Delta.

The collision occurred during a severe storm. The roads were very slippery and due to the heavy rain and darkness, visibility was poor.

“The contributing factors are still being investigated and police are seeking witnesses to assist in determining the cause of this tragic incident,” said Cpl. Ronda McEwen of B.C. RCMP Traffic Services.

The pedestrian was struck by a 2014 Chevrolet Trax driven by a 47-year-old man from Burnaby. The driver remained on the scene and is cooperating with police. Impaired driving is not a factor.

The pedestrian, a 23-year-old man from Delta, was transported to hospital with severe head injuries.

Deas Island Traffic Services was assisted by Delta Police Department, Delta Fire Rescue and the B.C. Ambulance Service.

The on-ramp was shut down for several hours as the collision was investigated.

Police are reminding motorists to slow down, especially, during poor driving conditions. Pedestrians are reminded to ensure they are visible and never assume a driver sees them.

Anyone with information is asked to call Deas Island Traffic Services at 778-290-2400 and reference file #2015-4262.
