DELTA Police on Friday confirmed that a Delta man was hit and killed by a vehicle on November 28 near the intersection of Ladner Trunk Road and Harvest Drive.
Emergency Health Services arrived at the scene first and confirmed the pedestrian was dead before police arrival.
The investigation has revealed that at approximately at 5:50 p.m., two pedestrians were walking eastbound in the 5800-block of Ladner Trunk Road on the north side of the road.
“One of the pedestrians then walked across Ladner Trunk Road, heading southbound,” says acting Inspector Ryan Hall, who oversees Traffic Services for Delta Police. “Unfortunately it appears he tripped on the median, and fell into the path of eastbound traffic. He was then struck by a vehicle.”
The driver of the vehicle stayed at the scene, and is cooperating with police. The investigation is being led by Delta Police Traffic Unit.
The dead man is a Delta resident in his thirties. Next of kin notifications were conducted by police on Thursday night, and victim services are offering support to the family of the dead person.
Any witnesses to this incident who haven’t yet spoken to police are asked to call 604-946-4411 and quote file number 19-27272.
