A black Jeep crashes into a Surrey bus stop

Man dead after being hit at bus shelter

Black Jeep leapt a curb at 156 Street and Fraser Highway striking a bus shelter where 22-year-old Evan Archibald was waiting.



A young man has died after being struck by a car while he was waiting at a bus stop in Surrey.

On Wednesday, (Oct. 7) at about 9:30 a.m., a 17-year-old girl was heading south in a black Jeep on 156 Street and attempted to negotiate a left turn onto Fraser Highway.

The Jeep jumped a curb and smashed into a bus shelter where a 22-year-old man was waiting. He was identified at the scene as Evan Archibald.

Archibald is the stepson of Greg Drew, who lost his own son in a car accident in 2003.

Drew has taken to speaking at Surrey schools about road safety ever since and created a website, Jammin’ 4 Jay Charitable Society, in memory of his son Jason “Jay” Drew.

He said this new loss of Archibald is devastating for the entire family.

“You don’t think you’re going to wake up and find your son has died,” Drew told CBC news. “To have lightning strike twice, now our family’s having to go through this again.”

There has been an outpouring of support for the family on the Jammin’ 4 Jay website.

Jessie Bowles wrote: “I can’t imagine what you are going through and to have to do it again stay strong like you did before you are a great person. You spoke at my school last year. You are such a great person. My thoughts go to you and your wife along with the rest of your family.”

Police say Archibald was taken to hospital in critical condition, but succumbed to his injuries.

The girl who was driving remained at the scene and is cooperating with police with information about the crash. She sustained minor injuries.

Mounties say that intoxicants are not believed to be a factor, but wet road conditions are believed to have contributed to the crash.

Police are urging drivers to be a bit more cautious as we head into the wet season.

“Definitely when the roads are wet, people have to take more care,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann.
