A woman was taken to hospital with “possible life-threatening” injuries after being struck by a pickup truck in South Surrey Friday (Dec. 18).
The incident occurred just after 8 a.m. on 32 Avenue, between 144 Street and Semiahmoo Trail.
32 Avenue was blocked while emergency crews were on the scene, and some investigators were still there as of 4 p.m., Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Duane Honeyman told Peace Arch News.
The woman who was struck was conscious and talking before being taken to hospital, though her condition Friday was still considered very serious, Honeyman noted.
On Monday afternoon, Surrey RCMP told PAN that the pedestrian was “in stable condition and expected to recover.”
The driver of the pickup truck remained at the scene and co-operated with police.
The collision occurred at nearly the same time as a second similar incident in North Surrey, in which a woman suffered “serious injuries” after being hit by a vehicle near 134 Street and 93A Avenue.
