A 16-year-old girl hit by an SUV in Cloverdale last month has succumbed to her injuries. She died in hospital Friday.

“Another angel gets her wings tonight,” said her father Paris Doran on Facebook.

Krysten Doran was crossing Highway 10 near 180 Street Feb. 24 when she was struck by a westbound SUV. She suffered extensive head and body injuries.

She was airlifted to hospital and underwent several surgeries.

Doran was wearing dark clothing when she was crossing Highway 10 and police say she was not at a marked crossing. Police also say it was dark out and the road conditions were wet.

They do not believe speed or alcohol were factors. The driver was not injured, but was shaken up as a result of the collision. Charges are not anticipated.

The incident is being investigated by Surrey RCMP Traffic Services.  Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the collision to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
