Sep 28, 2013 / 8:28 am
A male pedestrian was struck and killed in Maple Ridge Friday, only moments before a truck collided with a car that was braking for the incident a short ways behind, sending occupants of the car to hospital.
Ridge Meadows RCMP were called to the 23900 block of the Lougheed Highway just after 8:30 p.m. Friday September 27. Members of the B.C. Ambulance Service and Maple Ridge Fire Department also attended, and attempts were made to save the victim, who was pronounced dead at Ridge Meadows Hospital.
The investigation is in its beginning phases. said Sergeant Dale Somerville.
We have not established a cause, or had a chance to speak with all witnesses. The driver of the car that struck the pedestrian and the occupants of the car that was struck by a truck have also been injured. It is believed these injuries are not life threatening, however they will require some medical treatment.
The crash occurred in a very dark area of the Lougheed Highway. It was not raining at the time, but roads were wet and slippery. The Lougheed Highway will be closed to west bound traffic between 240 Street and 105 Avenue for the time being so we can start our investigation. It is unknown at this time how long the road will be closed.
The name of the deceased will not be released at this time.
