Two teenagers struck at Surrey crosswalk
Two people are in hospital after being struck by a pickup truck in Cedar Hills.
At about 10 a.m., two teenage girls, were crossing at a crosswalk near 96 Avenue and 122 Street when they were hit by a Dodge Ram pickup.
They were rushed to hospital and are reportedly in serious condition.
The driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with police.
Traffic will be closed in the area for some time. The Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team investigates.
It follows another serious accident in the 3400-block of King George Boulevard that killed a dog and seriously injured a woman.
“This is the second serious pedestrian motor vehicle collision in twenty-fours in Surrey,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr. “While the warmer weather always brings more residents and visitors to our roadways, drivers and pedestrians need to take the necessary precautions and understand that road safety is a shared responsibility.”
Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police 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 (8477).
