Police secure a scene where a three-year-old was struck while trick or treating on Halloween night.

Three pedestrians hit on Halloween

Man in critical condition and a three-year-old suffered a broken leg in accidents on Saturday

A man is in critical condition and a toddler being treated for a broken leg after two separate Halloween accidents where cars hit pedestrians.

At about 7 p.m. Saturday night, Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a car striking a child while trick or treating in the 13200-block of 62 Avenue.

Police arrived to find a woman and child, both who had been struck, and had sustained injuries.

They were taken to hospital, and police say the child suffered a broken leg in the accident.

Police believe a male driver had been negotiating a turn in a Dodge pickup, saw the woman and child, but wasn’t able to stop in time.

Alcohol and speed are not believed to be factors in this accident.

It is not clear at this time whether the woman and child were in a marked crossing.

There have been no charges laid at this time, however they may be, pending the outcome of the investigation.

Then at 9:10 p.m., police responded to a report of a pedestrian hit in the 8300-block of 144 Street.

A blue Toyota Yaris was travelling north on 144 Street when it struck a pedestrian.

A 57-year-old man was taken to hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Alcohol and speed are not believed to be factors in this accident.

Anyone who witnessed either of these accidents or has further information 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.
