Asian Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Delta: The driver of a Dodge Ram that hit a pedes­trian stayed on the scene and is fully co­op­er­at­ing with po­lice after a fa­tal crash Oc­to­ber 23.

Delta Po­lice were called to the scene of a se­ri­ous pedes­trian col­li­sion, ar­riv­ing shortly after 7:30 pm Oct. 23.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion has re­vealed that a driver was turn­ing from the Delta side of 120th Street, around the 9000 block, turn­ing north­bound out of a park­ing lot when a pedes­trian was struck.

Emer­gency Health Ser­vices was al­ready on scene, and the pedes­trian was taken to hospi­tal, but un­for­tu­nately, he died of his in­juries. The pedes­trian is 44 years old, of Sur­rey BC. His fam­ily has been no­ti­fied of his death. “While it is too early to speak to what caused this tragic crash, po­lice want to cau­tion both driv­ers and pedes­tri­ans to take ex­tra care as the days get shorter,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesper­son for Delta Po­lice. “Pedes­tri­ans should wear bright or re­flec­tive cloth­ing, or carry a light if pos­si­ble, and should be aware that driv­ers may not see them. Driv­ers should keep an eye out for pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists, par­tic­u­larly in in­ter­sec­tions and when mak­ing turns.”
