Crews look after a victim after a person was hit by a truck while waiting at a Newton bus stop.

Third person hit at a Surrey bus stop this month

A Ford F150 crashed into a bus stop at 60 Avenue and 152 Street Wednesday

A woman is lucky to have avoided serious injury after a truck crashed into a bus stop where she was waiting.

At about 9 a.m. Wednesday, a Ford F150, driven by a 17-year-old male, was heading east on 60 Avenue and turning north onto 152 Street.

The driver lost control of the truck and he smashed into a bus stop, shattering the glass in the back.

Police say a woman who was waiting for the bus was not struck directly by the truck, but was thrown through the back of the shelter and sustained only minor injuries.

It’s the third time a person has been injured in a by a car while at a bus stop this month.

At just after 6 p.m. Oct. 8, a white Corvette was travelling north on King George Boulevard near 96 Avenue when it lost control, struck a fire hydrant and crashed into a bus shelter, hitting a pedestrian.

The driver fled on foot and jumped into a cab.

A witness at the scene saw the driver flee and followed him a short distance, where the driver was seen getting into a taxi. The witness relayed the information to the police who were able to locate and stop the taxi at 88 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

A man who was believed to be the driver of the Corvette was later taken into custody by police.

The passenger in the car and the pedestrian were taken to hospital in serious condition.

The day before that accident, 22-year-old Evan Archibald was killed when a Jeep driven by a 17-year-old girl struck him while he waited at a bus shelter  on Fraser Highway near 156 Street.

Archibald was taken to hospital in critical condition, but succumbed to his injuries.

Anyone who witnessed any of these incidents and has not yet talked with police is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca
