Senior struck and killed in Surrey

Driver who hit 84-year-old pedestrian returned to accident scene.

An 84-year-old man is dead after being struck while out walking near a Surrey elementary school Thursday morning.

Surrey RCMP say they received a report of a possible hit-and-run in the 6900-block of 142 Street at about 11 a.m. May 7. When police arrived, said Sgt. Dale Carr, they found a man in “severe medical distress.”

The senior was transported to hospital, where he died from his injuries.

While the driver initially left the scene, said Carr, they returned shortly after, having realized they’d struck someone. He said it appeared the driver was reversing when the man was hit.

The car was seized and the driver is cooperating with the investigation. Excessive speed is not considered to be a factor in what police are calling a tragic “accident.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident and hasn’t spoken to police is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
