Emergency crews were called to 176 Street Saturday morning

Pedestrian dies crossing South Surrey highway

A Richmond man was killed as he crossed 176 Street just south of 8 Avenue Saturday morning.



A 53-year-old Richmond man died in South Surrey Saturday morning when he was struck by an SUV as he ran across 176 Street just south of 8 Avenue.

Cpl. Bert Paquet said the driver of the northbound Mitsubishi Outlander that struck the pedestrian did not see the man prior to impact, which occurred around 7:30 a.m. The man – whom police did not identify – was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the police file, the victim was a passenger on a southbound charter bus when the bus driver missed making a left turn onto 8 Avenue.

Planning to turn around at 4 Avenue, the driver pulled over early to let the victim off. It’s believed the man was headed to a nearby store when he was killed as he crossed eastward.

“Our victim, for whatever reason, asked to be let out,” Paquet said. “While attempting to cross the highway… our victim got hit in the northbound lane.”

Paquet said it was dark and raining at the time of the collision, and that the man was not in a marked crosswalk.

The Mitsubishi driver, a 43-year-old Surrey man, reported the incident to police and remained at the scene, Paquet said.
