Surrey woman dies after being struck by car Oct. 11

Driver remained at scene but police still asking witnesses to come forward.

A 76-year-old woman who was struck by a car in Surrey Oct. 11 has now died.

A woman who was struck by a car in mid-October has died in hospital.

On the morning of Oct. 11, a 76-year-old Surrey woman was crossing in a marked crosswalk at 140 Street and and Bear Creek Drive when she was hit by a white Honda Civic traveling northbound on 140 Street.

She was taken to hospital with critical injuries and died on Oct. 28.

The 24-year-old Surrey driver was not injured and remained at the scene. Alcohol and drugs have been ruled out as contributing factors in this collision, however, police are still investigating.

Anyone with more information who has not spoken to police is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigations Team (CCIT) at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS.

It is the eleventh traffic fatality and fifth pedestrian killed in the Surrey this year.

Surrey RCMP reminds both pedestrians and drivers to be extra vigilant when out on our roads, especially with Halloween fast approaching. Pedestrians are encouraged to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street and never assume a driver has seen you. Drivers are reminded to stay focused on the road and give themselves extra time and space to stop in case a pedestrian suddenly crosses the street.
