A 15-year-old girl was airlifted to hospital Wednesday

High-school student struck in South Surrey crosswalk

A 15-year-old girl suffered non-life-threatening injuries when she was struck in a South Surrey crosswalk Wednesday.

A 15-year-old South Surrey student was airlifted to hospital with non-life-threatening head injuries Wednesday evening after she was struck by a truck in a marked crosswalk.

An RCMP police spokesman said the teen was wearing dark clothing when she stepped into the crosswalk in front of Elgin Park Secondary, in the 13400-block of 24 Avenue, at around 5:30 p.m. and was hit by a westbound Ford F150.

A Dec. 5 letter to parents from EPS principal Bruce Filsinger notes the Grade 10 student “is going to be fine.”

“There are no internal injuries or head injuries and the student was being kept overnight for observation purposes only,” the letter states.

The teen was airlifted to hospital from nearby South Surrey Athletic Park.

The truck driver, a 54-year-old Surrey man, told police he didn’t see the pedestrian. He remained at the scene.

No charges have been laid. Investigation is ongoing.
