Elderly pedestrian killed in Vancouver crash with Surrey delivery van

Elderly woman was in marked crosswalk with husband when she was hit

One person has died and another is in hospital after Vancouver police said a Surrey driver collided with pedestrians in a crosswalk.

The crash happened at about 5:20 p.m. on Sunday when a Vancouver woman and her husband, both in their 70s, were in a marked crosswalk at Pacific Street and Richards Street, police said in a news release Wednesday.

A delivery van hit them when it made a left turn onto Pacific.

The driver, a 37-year-old Surrey man, stayed at the scene and is cooperating with investigators.

Anyone with dashcam footage or who may have seen the crash is asked to call police at 604-717-3012.

It is the city’s first pedestrian fatality of 2020.
