Surrey RCMP seek witnesses to pedestrian death

Photos of vehicles driving near 128 Street incident June 2 released by police.

Surrey RCMP are hoping to speak with the drivers of a truck (above) and a sedan (below) who may have witnessed a fatal pedestrian collision in Surrey on 128 Street on June 2.

Police are looking for two drivers who may have seen a man get hit by a car in Surrey early in June.

On June 2, a 52-year-old was crossing the street on foot near 128 Street and 83 Avenue when he was struck. He later died in hospital.

While the 17-year-old driver of the Acura that hit him stayed on scene and is co-operating with Surrey RCMP, there are two drivers who may have additional information who police would like to speak with.

The first is the driver of a grey sedan, possibly a Honda, that was headed southbound in the left hand lane of 128 Street. Witnesses reported the driver of the sedan honked his horn at the pedestrian and may have exchanged words with him before driving away. Moments later the pedestrian was struck.

The other driver police are seeking was in a dark-coloured quad pickup truck with distinctive wooden side rails around the box. It’s believed the truck stopped in the lefthand southbound lane to let the pedestrian cross and subsequently may have seen the man get hit by the car in the righthand southbound lane. Witnesses described the driver of the truck as a Caucasian male.

Surveillance photos of the vehicles were released by police Monday (June 23).

“While the driver of the vehicle involved is cooperating with police, our officers still need to collect all the necessary evidence from every possible key witness so that we can complete a comprehensive investigation,” said Cpl. Bert Paquet. “We are specifically appealing to these drivers to please step forward or, if you recognize any of these vehicles, to please contact our officers.”

Anyone with further information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca
