Pedestrian suffers head injuries in Surrey crash

Police say a 55-year-old Surrey man is in hospital after being struck Thursday night

SURREY — A pedestrian is in hospital with head injuries after a crash in Surrey Thursday evening.

Police say a 55-year-old Surrey man was hit by a vehicle in the 15200-block of 96th Avenue by a westbound driver at about 4:15 p.m.

Surrey RCMP attended the scene and the victim was taken to hospital.

“There is a possibility that the pedestrian stepped into traffic, so it could be the pedestrian’s fault,” Corporal Scotty Schumann told the Now-Leader. “It’s something we’re considering but there’s still a lot of investigating to do.”

Police closed 96th Avenue between 156th and 152nd Streets for some time.

The driver remained at the scene and is co-operating with police.

Surrey RCMP asks anyone who may have witnessed the collision to call 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit a tip online at solvecrime.ca.
