A pedestrian was fatally struck in Abbotsford Friday night (June 4).
Emergency services responded to the collision at the intersection of Clearbrook Road and Coral Avenue just after 10 p.m.
“Sadly, lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful, and the female was confirmed to be deceased,” says a news release from the Abbotsford Police Department.
They said the driver remained on scene and is co-operating with police. No further information is being released.
A truck was stopped several dozen metres past the impact site, and police covered parts of it to preserve evidence from the rain, a source said.
Abbotsford Police traffic and patrol units, along with RCMP’s Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Services, were on scene for several hours, blocking off Clearbrook Road in both directions.
Anyone who was in the area and may have dashcam footage is encouraged to call Abbotsford Police’s non-emergency line: 604-859-5225.
“The APD would like to remind the public to be aware of the road conditions and to drive accordingly, and further remind pedestrians to wear bright or reflecting clothing and use caution when walking on busy highways or roads.”
