File # 2017-37803

Last night (October 9th), Langley RCMP responded to a pedestrian struck in the 27300 block of Fraser Highway just after 7:00 p.m.

Multiple witnesses to the collision advise the male pedestrian had been walking eastbound on the south side of Fraser Highway when he tried to cross to the north side of the road. The male did not make this attempt in a crosswalk and was struck by an eastbound Dodge Neon. The male was clad in all black and there was very little lighting in that area of Fraser Highway.

Langley Traffic Services has assumed conduct of the investigation and ICARS attended to assist. Neither speed nor alcohol are believed to be factors in the collision.

The pedestrian, a 73 year old Abbotsford man, was airlifted to hospital for treatment of his very serious injuries.

The Neon was towed from the scene and a mechanical inspection will be completed.

Police have been told of two males walking the same direction as the pedestrian victim and may have stopped to offer first aid. These two males did not remain at the scene to speak with investigators. Police appeal for these two individuals to contact Langley RCMP and provide their account of the collision.

If there are any other individuals who have information about this collision and have not yet spoken to police, they are asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
