UPDATE: Pedestrian killed in hit-and-run on Langley Bypass

Surrey RCMP have located the older model, blue semi truck involved in the hit and run that killed a 37-year-old man on Wednesday.

A pedestrian was struck and killed in a hit-and-run crash in the 19500 block of Langley Bypass early Wednesday morning.

The victim of the fatal hit and run was a 37-year-old man, said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger. Police haven’t identified where he is from yet and still have to contact next of kin, he said.

It was around 3 a.m., when a semi truck without a trailer travelling in the eastbound curb lane struck and killed the man in the 19500 block, near the Hampton Inn. The driver of the semi carried on. Grainger said it is too early in the investigation to know if the driver is aware he or she hit and killed someone.

By Wednesday afternoon, Surrey RCMP had located the semi truck believed to be involved in the hit-and-run. More details are expected to come later in the day, said Grainger.

Witnesses report that the semi is an older model blue cab with silver on the back.

Police said that part of the Bypass is a busy, commercial hub so it isn’t that uncommon for pedestrians, even at that time of the morning, to be there.

“We are canvassing witnesses and will be reviewing the surveillance videos from neighbouring businesses,” said Grainger.

The Langley Bypass was closed between Fraser Highway and 192 Street until around 8:15 a.m. while police investigated. B.C. Coroner Services is also investigating.

Grainger expects to have an update on this fatal hit and run later today.
