ON Tuesday, September 12, at 11:28 p.m., Abbotsford Police patrol members responded to a collision between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian in the 33000-block of Gladys Avenue.
Police found a male pedestrian suffering from serious injuries and immediately began rendering aid. BC Ambulance Service and Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service were also on scene, providing life-support procedures to the 35-year-old male victim who, despite best efforts, could not be resuscitated and succumbed to the injuries.
The driver of the motor vehicle remained on scene and cooperated with the investigation. Impairment was determined not to be a factor.
