Surrey RCMP investigated the cause of a fatal collision in Whalley on Tuesday evening (Nov. 3).

A male pedestrian, 70, was killed after being struck by a vehicle in the 12600-block of 104th Avenue at just before 5 p.m.

Police, fire and ambulance personnel all attended the scene, which was dark and rainy at the time of the crash.

“Despite all attempts to revive the 70-year-old male, he succumbed to his injuries,” Surrey RCMP say in a news release. “The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and is co-operating with police.”

The name of the deceased was not made public.

A Black Press Media freelancer said the driver was behind the wheel of a white Ford Transit.

The area was closed to traffic for close to seven hours, until around midnight.

Investigators sought witnesses who observed the collision to contact the Surrey RCMP, and appealed for dash-cam video.
